First, let's clarify one thing: PILLING THE ACCOUNT OF OTHER PERSON IS ILLEGAL !!! *. Hacking other people without their consent is a cybercriminality.
First of all, Why are you exactly trying to hack someone else's account? His illegal. If you do not try to study safety, you should probably turn around now. Unless you really want to learn about security and computer hacking, you will not get much benefit from that. You can be ripped off, hacked or even thrown into jail. In addition, hacking is generally illegal. Why would foreigners put themselves in danger to help you do something illegal for free? Regardless, you should at least know Why it's a bad idea to ask these kinds of questions.
Here are some common answers I've seen at such posts on Facebook:
- Click here to hack Facebook accounts for free!
- You can learn to hack here.
- Phishing. You are phishing.
- Send me a message.
Answer (1) is probably a malicious link (bad). If you click on it, you will probably be brought to the site of a dishonest guy and possibly a virus on your computer / phone. Any message or website that claims to give you something that can hack anything for free is most likely a scam. This can take you some money or put a virus on your computer. It is best to ignore or report such links and messages.
Answer (2) can be a legitimate source for learning free hacking or just someone trying to advertise their own product or something related to it. If it's the 1st case, it's fine. You can learn to hack. If it 's the 2nd, it' s just the people who are legally trying to make money with you. In either case, you will probably have to be very technical if you want to hack something.
Answer (3) is probably the answer you are looking for. This is phishing. I'll come back to it later.
Answer (4): this can be any of these choices. They can deceive you but in private not to be kicked or banned from the group. They can also try to teach you phish. His All the foregoingbut in private, hidden from the public. Walk with caution.
D & # 39; AGREEMENT. Now, you know what people can tell you when you ask such questions on social media. You could get scammed or tricked into putting a virus on your computer. What should you do?
- Do not click on the fish / suspect links. If something seems dishonest, ask an expert or ignore him and go ahead.
- Use common sense. If it sounds too good to be true, it is probably the case.
- Use 2-factor authentication (2FA) or multi-factor authentication (MFA). You can use an app on your phone such as Google Authenticator or something like a Yubikey. That way, even if someone succeeds in getting your username and password, they will not (hopefully) be able to access your account, at least not without your phone / Yubikey.
Then I'll talk about how you can "hack" people's accounts.
So, how do people get their accounts hacked? Through phishing or spear phishing.
What is phishing? Just like a real fishing, you incite users to do anything you want without their consent. An example:
You receive an email: "Congratulations, you won $ 1 million! Click here to get your prize!"
You click on the link and you get a page asking you to login to your facebook / google / etc. account. to get the price. You enter your username and password and click on "Submit". BOOM! You have just been phishing and your credentials are now stolen.
What is spearing? It's like phishing, but targeting specific individuals instead of masses and the contents of a phishing email are more personal. Here is an example:
A friend sends you a message: "Hey man Joe is organizing a party next week to celebrate our big sale in the business! Here is a link to sign up for the party."
Again, it's a fake (bad) link. If you go there and "log in", you give them your credentials. The difference here is that the message has been made for you, with the name of your friends and the company and other personal information.
This is a very short and simple explanation of phishing and harpooning. More details can be found here and on Google.
Now that you have (hopefully) understood what phishing is, you should be more careful by clicking on the links in the comments, messages, emails, and so on.
