Even Facebook can’t quite protect you from hackers. How do these crooks fool you on Facebook?

1. Hackers replicate the official Facebook login page and waits for you to go online.
2. They’ll send you a rather decent-looking email, asking you to log in on that fake page.
3. Once you bite and key in your credentials, these hackers record your email address and Facebook password.

Keylogging is an aggressive way to hack into someone’s Facebook. Even the most technical person can be unaware that a keylogger has been installed on their computer, making all of its contents available to the hacker. How is it done?

1. With a software keylogger that runs on your computer’s operating system, no matter
the version
2. With a hardware keylogger that’s connected to any of your hardware such as a
compromised device connected to your keyboard

log-ins every time you need to. Besides, a password manager keeps your passwords safe.

When on an http:// connection, your browser cookie can be stolen. This cookie is important and should remain private as it is what’s used to authenticate your log-in. This way of hacking is mostly done on LANs where information between you and the server is stolen.

How to fight session hijacking? Use the ForceTLS add-on on Firefox. For Chrome users, you can use KB SSL Enforcer. These two redirect to a secured page of the websites you’re visiting.
