I am explaining this method first because its the most easiest and also the most popular method for hacking. You can also search on Google the various famous Facebook hacking methods and you will find technique on the top always. And I am explaining the methods according to their popularity.
Now you want to know which is my favorite method forpasswords and i will undoubtedly tell its simply PHISHING.
I will recommend my users to read this post for knowingusing Phishing as i have explained it here:
How to hack Facebook accounts or Passwords using Phishing
Best method for advanced Hackers and my second favorite too. Its popularity is little but lower than Phishingonly because it involves you toand then create your keylogger and send it to victim which is a lengthy process and also unsecured too as you don't aware that the keylogger that you downloading is himself contain some spyware or simply a keylogger attached with it. Keylogging becomes more easy if you have physical access to victim computer as only thing you have to do is install a keylogger and direct it to your destination so that it will send all recorded keystrokes to pointed destination. What a keylogger does is it records the keystrokes into a log file and then you can use these logs to get required Facebook passwordand thus can hack Facebook password.
3. Hacking the Primary Email address:
If Facebook hacker or any specific Keylogger, by some means, hacks your primary Gmail or yahoo account which you are using as primary email address, then this information account can easily hack your Facebook password using "Forgot password" trick. The Hacker will simply ask Facebook to send password to the primary email address and ask Facebook administrators to send the reset email to your primary email address- which is already hacked. Thus, your Facebook account password will be reset and it will also be hacked.
So, always remember to protect your primary email address that you have used to create Facebook accountand try to keep unknown or useless mail id as your primary email address in Facebook.
4. Social Engineering or Guessing Passwords:
A social engineering attack is one in which the intended victim is somehow tricked into doing the attacker's bidding. An example would be responding to a phishing email, following the link and entering your banking credentials on a fraudulent website. The stolen credentials are then used for everything from finance fraud to outright identity theft. An old adage comes to mind here, "it pays to be suspicious". With socially engineered attacks, the opposite is also true - if you aren't suspicious, you likely will end up paying. In addition tophishing, social engineering attacks can come in many forms - email that masquerades as breaking news alerts, or greeting cards, or announcements of bogus lottery winnings. Pump and dump stock scams are also a form of social engineering, playing on the recipients' natural desire to take advantage of a good deal. It's important to remember that if something sounds too good to be true, it's probably a scam. Social engineering attacks are also often used to trick users into infecting their own systems - for example, by disguising the malware as a video codec or Flash update. An email is sent enticing the recipient to view a bogus video clip, the victim visits the link contained in the email and installs the "codec/update" which turns out to be a backdoor Trojan or.
Remember: with social engineering scams, the attacker is relying on you to make the wrong choice. Choose not to be a victim.
