In 2016 the total number of unique phishing reports received is 1380432.

2. Reset password

In this technique the hacker enters your username or mail id and clicks on Forgotten your password? and selects the account.It will ask if you would like to reset the password via the victim's emails. This doesn't help, so the hacker will click on No longer have access to these?
It will now ask How can we reach you? the hacker will type in an email that he has already created and is not linked with any other FB account.
➤Now the hacker will be left with a security question to reset the password. The hacker will make an educated guess. If he figures it out, he can change the password. Security questions are generated automatically if not set and some be like "In which city where you born?" So it won't be hard for the hacker. Now the hacker has to wait 24 hours to login to their account and the reset password link will be sent over to the new e-mail. 
If the account holder logins within this 24 hours this techniques fails and also won't be successful for secured accounts.

You could rather use a password manager like LastPass to save your passwords.

To avoid these types of attacks use a VPN service and avoid using Public Wifi networks.

6. Viewing Masked Passwords

ShowPassword is an extension that helps you to view the masked password from the login page. The masked passwords can also be viewed by right clicking on the masked password and click on inspect element and change the input type from PASSWORD to TEXT.

7. Session Hijacking

When the Hacker and the victim are using the same network. The hacker can implement a DNS Spoofing attack to redirect the user from using the genuine Facebook page to his own fake login page and thus taking over the Facebook account easily.


  • Managing DNS servers securely.
  • Avoid using a shared network.
  • Configure it to be secured against cache poisoning.

9. Sidejacking - Firesheep

Sidejacking is the way towards taking somebody's entrance to a site, commonly done on remote open systems. To sidejack access to a site, the hacker performing utilizes a bundle sniffer to acquire a decoded cookie that awards access to a site. Firesheep is an extension for the Firefox browser that uses a sniffer to catch decoded session from sites like Facebook and Twitter. This module spies on Wi-Fi correspondences, tuning in for session cookie. When it identifies a session cookie, the device utilizes this to get the info of that session. The gathered info are shown in a side bar in Firefox. By tapping on the name, the session is controlled by the hacker.
