How To Hack Into Someone’s Facebook Account Without Them Knowing
Do you ever wonder what your kids are doing and who they are chatting with when they are using Facebook? Of course, they aren’t going to willingly give out this information, because they will feel that it is an invasion of their privacy. But, as a parent, you really do need to know what they are doing online. There are just too many dangers out there, and kids are some of the most vulnerable when it comes to online predators.
And, it isn’t just sex offenders and traffickers that you have to worry about. These days, cyberbullying is a huge concern, and one that can have serious consequences. So, how do you find out what your kids are doing on Facebook?
You can hack into their accounts. This may seem sneaky, but it is much better than having them putting themselves at risk. Let’s take a look at some of the ways how to hack into someone’s Facebook account without them knowing, especially your kid’s Facebook for their protection.
Hacking a Facebook Account with Tracking Software
You don’t necessarily have to be a computer expert, such as a software developer, to be able to hack into someone’s Facebook account without their knowing about it. You will need to have the right software that is going to help you gather the information you need, including chat history, friends lists, and what they are posting online.
You can find many different tracking software packages online that will give you access to Facebook, as well as other things that they are doing online. When you are using spy and tracking software, you will be able to look at everything that they are doing while using Facebook.
If you find that they are posting photos that are too revealing, having explicit chats with others, etc., you will be able to take steps to correct the problem, even if it means taking away their cellphones and limiting internet time.
Is Tracking Software Legal?
Before you install and use tracking software to track a cell phone, you need to find out if it is legal in your state to do so. The legality of tracking software varies from state to state. In some states, you are free to use all of the features.
In others, you can’t use the software at all, or you are very limited as to what you are allowed to do with it. If you are using the software to monitor your kids’ online activities for their protection, and you are following all of the terms and conditions, there shouldn’t be any legal issues to worry about.
Other Hacking Methods
Hacking software is not the only way you can hack a Facebook account (although it is probably the easiest method). Some of the things you can do in order to find out what your kids are doing when they are using Facebook include:
Reset the Password
As long as you have access to their email login (which you should have as a parent), you can reset the password, and then look at everything that they have been doing on Facebook. Unfortunately, they will probably figure out what you have done when they try to log in and discover that their password has been changed.
To reset the password, click on “forgot your password” and enter the email address of the account owner. Then, choose a new password, and you can get into the account and gain access to all of their information, posts, chats, and more.
Use a Keylogger
You can also get a software keylogger, which is a program that will record keystrokes, and it can do it without the knowledge of the user. This software must be downloaded directly onto their computer, so if you don’t want them to know what you are doing, it is best to do this while they are in school.
Once it is downloaded, you can program the software to send you summaries of all keystrokes. There is also the hardware keylogger, which requires you to use a USB to connect to the computer. Again, it is best to do this while they are not at home.
This is probably the most difficult of all of the hacking methods, but it is one that is commonly used to hack into Facebook accounts. One of the most common methods of phishing is to create a phony login page.
It will be sent to the user, and they will think that they must log in. Once they log in, their information is going to be sent directly to you rather than to Facebook. This process is long and tedious, and can be tricky for those who are not computer savvy.
Man in the Middle
Another option is what is known as the “man in the middle attack.” You will need to get as close as possible to who you are monitoring (in this case, your kids), and then fool them into connecting to a phony Wi-Fi network. There are various tools that you can use to create the phony Wi-Fi network, and you don’t have to spend a lot of money.
Once your kids log into the fake network, you can watch what they are doing, or even send them to fake login pages so you can get into their Facebook accounts. This can even be set up so you only replace some pages and not others, so they will not become suspicious.
When it comes to kids and social media, or actually, the internet in general, you just can’t be too careful. There are too many dangers out there, including online predators and cyberbullies, who are just looking for their next victims.
Don’t let your kids be those victims. Even if it does mean intruding on their privacy, you can have the peace of mind of knowing that you are doing everything in your power to keep them safe. As a parent, this is one of your most important roles, and you need to do what is necessary, no matter how sneaky it may seem.
