Hacking Someone’s Facebook Password Using Some Software Or Website? No Sir You Can’t!

facebook hackingDo you know there are over thousands of websites and software that claim to hack Facebook password of any account? They’d ask you the victim’s profile ID, maybe your credentials and some money too and will reportedly tell you the password which, to be honest, never works. Ever wonder why? Let me tell you why, they’re FAKE! They’re a scam which tricks you somehow in losing your money or your own Facebook account. Just give it a thought, why would Zuckerberg and his team spend Billions of Dollars on Facebook if one could hack it in less than a minute? Today, we’ll take a look at this topic in detail with some example websites and software and get answers to some common related questions.
Back in 2005, I came across a mechanism that reportedly hacked Yahoo mail password for a user using some simple tricks. It didn’t work for me for obvious reasons but I didn’t stop believing the possibility until I grew up to realize how helpless I am here. One of the major concerns of large organizations like Facebook and Yahoo is security because of the super sensitive information about people they have. Several hundred million dollars are spend yearly by these organizations to ensure security and then there’s these websites that claim to undo all that protection in less than a minute.
Let’s start with some examples here. I googled the subject and picked the top results without order. Didn’t care to search harder because there are thousands such and I know that all are FAKE.
So let’s look at this GETFBHACK.com.
hacking facebook passwordTheir FREE Facebook hacker program is said to be capable of cracking the password of any Facebook user within a day. Sounds cool, I could try it out, but my Norton Antivirus rejected the file straight away.
I also picked up another one. This Hack-Fbook-Password asks me to enter the profile ID of a user and it will crack the password. I said Okay and began the process.facebook hackingIt ran certain algorithms to determine the password and finally landed me on a page that said I could DOWNLOAD the password IF I fill an online survey first. Those of you who’ve been redirected to surveys would know they don’t work and are put just so to get traffic and earn money.
I said maybe I should leave the website now but hey, they gave me a prize!hacking facebook
So I just became the luckiest person in my city just like that!

Now tell me, how can a sane person believe in all this?

Let me get this straight to you, these websites do nothing at all just waste your time and are never able to do the job. In fact, downloaded programs just make the situation worse when you run them. I had my Norton Antivirus to guard me otherwise I could be in severe danger currently.These software are mostly keyloggers and tracking programs that record your keystrokes and action and steal personal information from your computer in the background and send it to their master servers. So ultimately a hacker wannabe gets hacked, how ironic!From now on in the post, I’ll be using the word ‘Hacker’ for these websites and software since you’re no more in the position to be called that.
facebook hackSetting up websites, maintaining them and developing software is not an easy task. It requires some money. So why do these ‘hackers’ do all the hassle? It’s because they get equivalent or more money in return. They can extract your credit card details and other banking info from your system and use it for their advantage. They can hack your account and use it for wrong purposes. Give me one reason why one wouldn’t steal money and hack accounts for no loss.
facebook hackWhy do people try to use such unreal hacking procedures? It’s because it’s unreal to me, it’s unreal to you but not to those who are not much familiar with the working of a software. They get in the web of these hackers and eventually get screwed up pretty bad without consent.The websites give guarantees and also portray their ‘imaginary’ happy customers so as to trick a reader. Such tactics are simple but really powerful and serves to their advantage in most cases. This is also why there are thousands of such websites available.
facebook hackingWell, NO. Facebook accounts can be hacked. No online service is foolproof and that is because of the flaws and bugs in their software. There are several ACTUAL hackers in the world who can analyse a website’s security and use that against it thus making hacking a reality. But I’m 100% sure none of them uses these scam and fake websites that claim to do the impossible. You can check out our hacking section to know more.I’ll end the ‘lesson’ with an idiom, “look before you leap”. Focus, think and then follow. In case of any queries or confusions head over to the comments section. Cheers 🙂

Brute-force attack will take hundreds or even thousands of years to crack such complex and long passwords.Example: Passwords like “iloveu” or “password” can be cracked easily whereas computer will take years to crack passwords like “aN34lL00”

Social engineering is process of manipulating someone to trust you and get information from them. For example, if the hacker was trying to get the password of a co-workers or friends computer, he could call him pretending to be from the IT department and simply ask for his login details. Sometime hackers call the victim pretending to be from bank and ask for their credit cards details. Social Engineering can be used to get someone password, to get bank credentials or any personal information.Countermeasure: If someone tries to get your personal or bank details ask them few questions. Make sure the person calling you is legit. Never ever give your credit card details on phone.
keyloggerIn keylogging or RATing the hacker sends keylogger or rat to the victim. This allows hacker to monitor every thing victim do on his computer. Every keystroke is logged including passwords. Moreever hacker can even control the victims computer.Countermeasure: Never login to your bank account from cyber cafe or someone else computer.

For example URL of phishing page of facebook might look like facbbook.com (As you can see There are two “b”). Always make sure that websites url is correct. Check out below article to know more about phishing.A Rainbow table is a huge pre-computed list of hashes for every possible combination of characters. A password hash is a password that has gone through a mathematical algorithm such as md5 and is transformed into something which is not recognizable. A hash is a one way encryption so once a password is hashed there is no way to get the original string from the hashed string. A very commonly used hashing algorithm to store passwords in website databases is MD5. It is almost similar to dictionary attack, the only difference is, in rainbow tables attack hashed characters are used as passwords whereas in dictionary attack normal characters are used as passwords. Example: ‘hello’ in md5 is 5d41402abc4b2a76b9719d911017c592 and zero length string (“”) is d41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427eCountermeasure: Make sure you choose password that is long and complex. Creating tables for long and complex password takes a very long time and a lot of resources
password guessingThis seems silly but this can easily help you to get someones password within seconds. If hacker knows you, he can use information he knows about you to guess your password. Hacker can also use combination of Social Engineering and Guessing to acquire your password.Countermeasure: Don’t use your name, surname, phone number or birthdate as your password. Try to avoid creating password that relates to you. Create complex and long password with combination of letters and numbers.
