How to Figure Out Someone’s Facebook Password

Computer laptop with unlocked lock on it

Question

A friend of mine got really mad at me and she knew what my Facebook password was, so she changed it and now I can’t login. I tried using a keylogger to find out what she’s using for my password but I can’t get it to work. What should I do?


Answer

Technically, your friend doing that may be in violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act and they could be committing a crime. You installing a keylogger on their computer may also be a crime as well. We don’t suggest you do this.

You can easily get your password reset by clicking on the “Forgot account?” link when you try to login. Facebook will help you recover your password. This is the best action to take.

Although it used to be fairly easy to guess someone’s password (their birthday, anniversary, pet’s name, etc.), Facebook has now made passwords stronger and people are notified if Facebook detects a strange login. It’s just not worth trying to hack an account.
