If you’re into cybersecurity, ethical hacking or bug bounty, it is very likely that you are familiar with what I’m going to write across the next few lines.
Without a shadow of a doubt, a lot of us have received DMs or tweets like the one in the screenshot.
The vast majority of you choose to ignore the seek of knowledge of these people, just because you know how insanely hard that action would be, but I’ve decided not to. Someone has to answer their quest for education in this field. So let’s get our hands dirty.
How to hack a Facebook account
The first step of hacking into your girlfriend’s Facebook is … DON’T DO IT. Don’t even think about it. Not without their permission at least.
If you have trust issues in your relationship, go and talk about it with your partner to settle it out, speak with your friends about your problems or make an appointment with a psychologist. Don’t sneak like a burglar into her social media accounts just because you’re insecure and want to control her, that will end up ruining your romance and make her lose interest in you.
If losing your significant other is not enough for you, you could even lose your freedom and money, as stealing people’s confidential information is punished with imprisonment in almost every country.
Why am I talking about stealing confidential information? The security of the accounts at Facebook or Instagram is pretty insane, and if you’re able to hack one of their accounts, you should probably report it as soon as possible to them, and you’ll end upwith a fairly awesome 5 or 6 digit reward.
99’9% of the compromised social media accounts are compromised through phishing, scamming the victim to unknowingly give their login credentials.
