So guys as in many YouTube videos or as they call it “Hacking Tutorials” people claim that they are about show you how to hack Facebook in a simple way. And if you continue the video they will show you some steps or some software to hack Facebook and eventually they hack the Facebook. But what happens when you do those steps? You get nothing except wastage of your useful time.

Why? Because its all fake. Trust me YouTube is having no video which really show you how to hack Facebook. Hacking Facebook is not that easy, Facebook pays millions of dollars to the professional  white hat hackers to ensure its security and you think that just by watching some fake videos on YouTube you can beat those professional white hat hackers? No, it’s not possible.

But yes I agree that YouTube is having too many videos which can teach you social engineering or phishing in a really good way or you may guess someone’s security question right and change its password.
          
          Buts its not real hacking , Okay! So, if someone is claiming that they can crack or “HACK” someone’s Facebook, they are lying. Okay, you never gonna get the password, you might be able to gain access to their account, probably not. Definitely not from the videos that you saw on YouTube. If someone is really skilled at the stuffs on the internet he might be able to get access to someone’s account but are not going to get password. And probably only few know how to access someone account until you guess the right security question. Guessing right security question is the greatest flaw any website can have, because for your relatives and friend its very easy to guess the right answer.

So if you don’t want your Facebook account to get compromised or “HACKED” the only thing you have to worry about is just having secure password and a difficult security question and have a different password on both your social media account and on your email account and also NEVER type in your Facebook password on place other than www.facebook.com because ‘phishing’ is probably the most easy way to get your Facebook account hacked or compromised. In phishing you just type your password on a page which looks like Facebook but actually its not Facebook and they didn’t hack you instead you gave them your password as a gift, Alright. So basically if you get hacked its your own fault, that’s basically the message I want to convey to you.

Securing Your Accounts

You can easily prevent yourself from getting your Facebook or any other social media account hacked or compromised. There are very cases when website password database will get compromised but that’s very rare, it has happen a few time but most probably its your fault. Its your fault for adopting poor security practices. So you are the only person who can only defend yourself against getting hacked. Although its not hacking.

I understand that the term hacking is basically changing at this point. It no longer mean what it used to be.

If someone really took the time to really hack Facebook, which probably has some of the most advanced security software and hardware in the world because it is the one of the biggest website in the world. They’re not gonna just post it to your wall. Let’s just say that, they’re gonna mess your day up, they’re gonna steal hundreds of thousands of credit card and stuff like that.

Okay guys so things to take away from this post are :-
1. Secure Passwords
2. Secure security questions
3. Don’t keep same password everywhere 
4. And never type in your password anywhere until you are sure that it is the real website

I hope this post was informative and full of legit information. Be secure adopt strong security practices and if you have any issue or want me to post on a particular topic let me know in the comments.
