Facebook accounts hacked

You must have heard about Facebook accounts hacked. Around 30 million Facebook account was hacked.

There was a security patch in last month which gave access to hackers to steal secret access tokens for millions of accounts by taking advantage of a flaw in the ‘View As’ feature.

Though Facebook estimated that 50 million accounts were hacked, a report said that 30million accounts have hacked using this vulnerability.

A Facebook resource person said that hackers have collected these data from the victim accounts

  1. Usernames and contact information including phone numbers, email addresses and other contact information depending on what users had on their profiles of 15million users.
  2. And the other 14million users data were collected in detail such as personal data, along with other details users had on their profiles, like gender, language, relationship status, religion, hometown, current city, birthdate, device types used to access Facebook, education, work, the last 10 places they checked into or were tagged in, website, people or pages they follow, and the 15 most recent searches.

How to check if your Facebook account was hacked or not:

Facebook users can check their account was hacked or not by visiting this social network’s help center

Facebook will also directly reach out attacked users and inform them what data was collected when they were hacked.

Note: Please don’t overuse Facebook in your life. Make sure that you don’t add the check-in’s or your traveling post. So that the Hacker(attacker) will not get complete data on you. Live your life in real rather than in virtual(Social media).
