How to hack Facebook: Explained in easy steps! Just check these YouTube videos
How to hack Facebook? Yes, after the recent hack of this social network, that even reportedly compromised the account of co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, this question is roiling cyber space like no other! And, now, there are many who are trying to show that it is quite easy to hack Facebook! Truth in it? Well, let us just say that there are now more reasons for you to worry about your Facebook account's safety. Last week, around 5 crore Facebook users including from India, lost their data to hackers. Now according to some reports, there are many tutorials available on Google's video streaming platform YouTube that claim to provide ways to hack Facebook accounts. BTW, YouTube is owned by bitter rival Google!
There are thousands of such videos by various Youtube users. Several of these videos have been watched a million times and describe hacking techniques that are eerily similar to the ones used by the Facebook hackers just days ago.
Facebook's head of cybersecurity Policy Nathaniel Gleicher has reportedly told The Telegraph that he was aware of such videos and they are ensuring that people's accounts are protected.
The report also quoted a Google spokesperson who said that the search engine giant is reviewing and will be removing such contents from Youtube.
If this was not enough, there are hundreds of websites which claim to provide access to any user's Facebook account by breaking into it. Many of these videos also demonstrate the use of these websites.
If any of these methods work, this will make Facebook users' data more insecure and vulnerable to hacking threats. These tutorial videos and websites may become a weapon for hackers who may be able to easily violate someone's privacy as well.
