Q. How your friends were hacking Facebook passwords?

You had to enter these 3 secret keys to recover FB password. Now here is a big loop hole.

Latest methods to hack facebook password
This method is very powerful and it is a part of social engineering attack. An attacker can send you a Facebook login page. This page will look exactly like original one. But this page is actually a fake page. As soon as you enter your username and password, the attacker will receive your all login information at the same time. Attackers can send login page link by email. This email can be so well designed that a normal person can never imagine that this is a fake email.

If you have studied mathematics then there is a topic called permutation and combination( p&c ). By using p & c, we can determine the possible combination of any n numbers. Similarly, we can make a long list of passwords from alphabets. Then we can use hit and trial method. If the password contains only alphabets or only numbers then we can crack the passwords within few hours. But if the password contains a combination of alphabets, numbers, special characters then it can take few years to crack the password. So theoretically every password can be cracked but practically it is impossible. Our home computers can’t run for years, right? So it is always advisable to create a password with a combination of alphabets, numbers, special characters. Although Facebook’s servers are so smart that they can analyse if somebody is trying hit and trial.
