How to Stop Hackers From Getting Into Facebook Accounts

If you suspect that your Facebook account is compromised, you should change your password immediately. If you use Facebook as a login for apps such as Spotify or Instagram then you must change the logins. This will prevent the hacker from accessing the third-party apps through your compromised Facebook profile.

Hackers can find many personal details in compromised Facebook accounts. Hackers could use this information for malicious purposes, like getting credit card numbers, and bombarding people with fake credit card offers or scams using phishing. They may also use the compromised account to send threatening messages to friends, or even share a status update on your timeline that includes your name (as as if you did it yourself).

One of the most common ways hackers gain access to an account is when they exploit a flaw in Facebook’s app code. A flaw in the iOS Facebook application allows hackers to take over cookies and steal the «access token» of an iPhone user. These tokens, which are digital keys, give them full control over the user’s Facebook Account, and any other websites they visit using their Facebook credentials.

Hackers can also gain access to accounts through brute-force attacks. This method involves figuring out the password, usually the most frequently used ones like 123456789 or 1234567890. Hackers also gain access to accounts by scanning compromised credentials. There are many free tools to scan for stolen data, including the well-known website HaveIBeenPwned.
