Recovering A Hacked Facebook Account
There are any number of ways hackers may have hacked your Facebook account. They could have guessed your password, set up an Evil Twin Wi-Fi Hotspot at a coffee shop and stolen your credentials through a Man-in-the-middle attack, you could have left your account logged in at the computer lab at your school or maybe they’re using your account from a stolen tablet or phone.
Regardless of how these persons managed to obtain your Facebook credentials, the best thing you can do is take quick action to limit the amount of damage that can be done. If too much time is wasted, these persons begin using scamming tactics to trick your friends into falling for scams that and your friends begin thinking that the scammer is actually you.
