How To Hack A Facebook Account Without Ever Knowing The Password

Use Facebook? Want it to be safe and protected? I am sure you’ve already heard countless times that in order to keep your Facebook account (or all other accounts you may have) secure is to choose a strong password.

You might have used a service like Strong Password Generator or something similar to pick a nice long password with a confusing combination, a ton of symbols and numbers. This sounds foolproof right?

What if I told you you’re wasting your time? What if I told you that if I wanted too I could go and hack into your Facebook, or any other of your accounts in a matter of seconds? Scary stuff, huh?

Every second people are getting their accounts broken into by not just hackers but normal people. How is this possible?

How To Hack Any Account In Seconds

 

Let me introduce you to a Firefox addon called FireSheep. What FireSheep does is it hi-jacks other peoples session and lets you use it. For instance close to all sites on the web store cookies on their servers.  Now I am not talking about the chocolate chip type of cookies. Nope, these cookies save your preferred settings for sites, while other cookies have your username and password on them.

To break into someones account just open up FireSheep, click ‘Start Capturing’ and it will list all the users in your network that are currently logged on. For instance sites like GMail, Yahoo and Facebook will most likely appear.

So all you would have to do to is double click on a name or icon in FireSheep and I can access your account. All I did was steal your cookies and tricked the site into allowing me to log in.

From here I can do what ever I want. Post on your wall, message someone, or if I wanted even change your password. All this without me ever knowing what your password was and without leaving a trace.

Now before you go bashing on FireSheep, the creator of made it to warn sites like Facebook to cover holes in the sites and to stop HTTP session hi-jacking. Even though people might use it for wrong, that was not the original intention for it.

 

How To Protect Yourself


Like I said people will use FireSheep for the wrong things. So how do you protect yourself?

These is a Firefox addon called HTTPS Everywhere which encrypts your connection. For instance when you visit websites you are visiting them unencrypted or unprotected. This is because your visiting sites using HTTP.  But, for example  on websites where you have to enter private info (e.g Credit Cards, Social Security) they change HTTP to HTTPS.

What this basically means is that no one will be able to steal your info because its secure and encrypted.

Hopefully that all made sense, if not ask me your questions in the comment section below.

 

Conclusion


Now you know how to hack a Facebook account and how to protect yourself. Keep note that FireSheep does not limit itself to only FB so make sure to install the HTTPS Everywhere addon to make sure your everything’s good.

    Edwin,

    Very nice explanation for protecting your Facebook account. It is interesting to see how easily an account can be hacked and how to keep it from happening.

    I do not think most people are aware of how to protect themselves.

  10. Hi Edwin!

    It’s just a pity that you neglected to mention that for this “Firesheep” addon to work you have to be connected to the same network as the person you are trying to hijack cookies from.

    For example, there is NO WAY for you to use Firesheep to hack my FaceBook A/c simply because you can’t get into my private network.

    It is people who use insecure and/or public WiFi networks who are in danger of this sort of thing. But those people probably deserve what they get anyway. :-) It is not hard to stay secure on the Internet, but it does take effort which is why so many don’t do anything about it.

    It’s good that you brought this to your readers’ attention, but it is very bad that you did not give the full story and that you sensationalised it. :-(

    Kind regards,
    Steve

    Its true indeed, it is much safer to store the password in your browser instead of letting the site “remember you”…

    Today I received a mail from a reader asking me how people hack Facebook accounts. So this post is actually an answer to that question. The most used hack or exploit that is used to hack Facebook profiles is by using fake Facebook login pages.
    Generally, a person goes to a fake facebook login page where the used logs in with the ID & Password, and that fake login page forwards to login details to the hacker.

    Facebook has never been completely scam-free, but its privacy settings may create a false sense of security: most users can’t interact with one another unless they are “friends” or belong to the same general network.

  19. So obviously you are only a tech enthusiast. There is a program that attacks the bridge between unencrypted and encrypted. Basically you perform a mitm attack and strip the ssl before it is even applied. Trust me if someone wanted your information bad enough they could get it.

    I never said you don’t know anything. I simply am saying that people who go to public cafes need to be… paranoid, for lack of a better word. A good alternative is to set up a shunnel which anyone who can read directions can set up. You can have either windows or linux to set it up and it gurentees that all traffic from your computer is encrypted over ssh.

  20. Gosh, is it that simple?

    I sometimes think FB is very dangerous… My friend account was hacked before and used for some illegal activities by the hacker. My friend was in deep trouble because of that.

    Luckily I have not come across this bad experience and I’d never want to experience it either. What can be more shocking then to discover someone using your account. ID thefts and hacks are rampant these days. With the changing times we have to be well educated about how to prevent our accounts from getting hacked.

    You really rock Mr. Edwin. I just don’t understand how can you be so intelligent at this age. Hats off!! So it’s all about fire sheep. I think even if we get cookies, then also it will be great because there are some cookies which will provide us with the username and also the password of the account. So now all you need is to use this name and password and start hacking accounts. It’s good if you want to play pranks but please don’t misuse this feature.

    Sorry to say this and I know it’s a bad thing but I have started hacking all of my friends account without even they knowing about what’s happening. I am just doing this to impress all my friends by first hacking their account and then getting the same account back to them. I just love doing this these days because whenever there is any problem with their face book account the only person they remember who can get their accounts back is me. I know it’s wrong but I am soon going to stop this. It’s only for a few days that I am enjoying it.

    Edwin it’s a good idea. But this blog has actually a lot of traffic over it and I think it’s not good to share something like this as most of the traffic that you will be getting on will be of youngster and school going children. So I think they will surely misuse this hacking system and will harass all of their friends. As you know that youngsters keep playing pranks with their friends. So I think posting like this is not a good option. Sorry if you feel bad about anything. But this is my opinion.

Moreover, I also tried using Blacksheep which works on same principle of hacking (Guess using C Language) but it also fails. Kindly help me with it. I am a regular user of Mozilla Firefox.

I think you should be working in an SEO company where they require people who can drag a lot of people on their websites. You would be like a precious stone for them. Good work! Fire sheep has actually helped all of us to get more fun on face book. I have also hacked a couple of face book accounts but yes it was only for fun because after some days I have handed over their accounts to them with their new passwords.

    Hi Adam, I think there must be some other issue. May be you have not installed the software completely on your computer because even I am using Firefox 6 but I have not faced any problem yet and it is working quite well. Uninstall the software from your computer then again install it and restart your computer. I am sure it will work properly this time.

    Fire sheep works wonders. When I read this blog I considered it as a prank but the moment I tried it actually worked. I could afford to hack 5 face book accounts. But yes I play a smart game because I don’t let others hack my account because I have installed HTTPS (hypertext transfer protocol secure). This will not let the others to hack your account.

    “Once by mistake I entered my previous password in my face book account. As I was aware about the use of fire sheep I thought that must be my friends have hacked my account. I was so annoyed that I almost fought with all of them. But then I realized the mistake I did while logging in. That was too funny. I still laugh on myself for doing such a foolish act.

  80. Apparently I can’t even get Firesheep to install correctly. I have a Mac OS X so it should be working fine. When I first tried to download, it wouldn’t let me because I had the newest version of Firefox. But I reinstalled an older version and it let me download it, or so it seemed. But when I try to install, it says I need restart Firefox to complete and when I choose the “restart” button, it shuts down Firefox & reopens it but acts like I haven’t installed anything. I go into “Finder” to locate the Firesheep which is there, but when I click and choose “open” it starts the whole bull crap thing over again telling me I need to restart Firefox to install. Vicious circle. Doesn’t work. :( Very disappointing

  81. ok, now I managed to get installed, but when I pressed the “start capturing” button, I got an error message that says “Couldn’t get netmask for device en1:en1:no IPv4 address assigned”. Still not working. Any advice?

    Even I like face book Wayne. I cannot survive if I don’t login to my account at least once in a day. I like staying connected to all my friends and attending all the events that my society friends keep inviting me for. It’s just fun to be active on face book. Also getting updates about any of your friend is possible on face book for free. Hacking accounts is also funny. One of my friends played this prank on me and just to get access over my account I had to treat him in a 3 star restaurant. But it was quite an enjoyable experience with face book.

    I would not deny that once upon a time even I have hacked many of my friends face book accounts. I only used to do it for fun but yes I always ensured that I finish the prank before the matter became serious. Its better that we do not irritate our friends or else even we would be the ones who would face the same issue some day.

    Sorry, I have a hunch that the makers of FireSheep stopped supporting it and is no longer compatible with the new versions of Firefox :/

  98. Hey dude, first thanks for the tip. I have a totally different problem. I already have my dad’s facebook password. But I’m afraid he might change it very soon and I no longer have the software that helped me get it. So i was wondering if there is any way for me to still receive his new passwords in my email on something like this. And just in case you were wondering, I’m keeping an eye on him for my mum lol. Peace

    It’s always only a matter of time before someone creates a program or figures out how to hack something, isn’t it? Thanks for this info though, it’s good to know.

    []

  104. Does this work only for people in your network? What if you want to access an account of a person that lives approximately 20-30 minutes away? Can you still use this program to access their account?
    And also, if you cannot access an account of a person like this with this program, what are other ways?

    Firesheep can be used only in the Public wifi network.It cannot be used be for remote hacking as u said.other methods are keylogging,phishing,using RATS etc.
