The tool works by sending malicious links to unsuspecting Facebook users through Messenger or other platforms. Once the user clicks on the link, the tool hijacks their Facebook session and accesses their profile data. The tool can also spread itself by sending the same link to the user's friends.
This is not the first time that Facebook has been targeted by hackers. In 2018, a security breach affected 30 million users, exposing their intimate details[^1^]. Facebook said it had fixed the vulnerability and notified the affected users. However, some experts warned that the stolen data could be used for sophisticated phishing attacks or identity theft[^1^].
Facebook users are advised to be careful about clicking on links from unknown sources and to check their security settings regularly. They can also use two-factor authentication and log out of their accounts when not using them. If they suspect that their account has been hacked, they can report it to Facebook's Help Center[^3^].
How to Protect Your Facebook Account from Hackers
While Facebook has taken steps to improve its security and privacy, users also need to be proactive and take measures to protect their accounts from hackers and scammers. Here are some tips to help you keep your Facebook account safe and secure:
Create a secure password. Choose a password that is hard to guess, but easy to remember. Avoid using your name, birthdate, pets, or common words in your password. Use a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols, and make it at least 10 characters long. You can also use a password manager to generate and store strong passwords for you.[^1^]
Use two-factor authentication. Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security to your login process. It requires you to enter a code that is sent to your phone or email, or generated by an app, after you enter your password. This way, even if someone knows your password, they won't be able to access your account without the code. To turn on two-factor authentication on Facebook, go to Settings > Security and Login > Use two-factor authentication.[^2^]
Use Facebook Protect. Facebook Protect is a feature that helps high-target accounts, such as public figures or journalists, adopt stronger security protections and monitor for potential hacking threats. If you are eligible for Facebook Protect, you will see prompts on Facebook to enroll in the program. Facebook Protect will scan your account for vulnerabilities and suggest fixes, such as changing your password or enabling two-factor authentication.[^3^]
Be careful about clicking on links. Hackers and scammers often use malicious links to hijack your Facebook session and steal your profile data. They may send you these links through Messenger or other platforms, pretending to be your friends or trusted sources. Do not click on any links that look suspicious or come from unknown sources. If you receive a link from a friend that seems out of character, contact them directly and ask them if they sent it.
Check your security settings regularly. It's a good idea to review your security settings on Facebook from time to time and make sure they are up to date. You can check your security settings by going to Settings > Security and Login. Here you can see where you're logged in, change your password, turn on alerts for unrecognized logins, manage your trusted contacts, and more.
