3. Tab Napping Method To Hack Facebook
Tab napping is an easy method to hack the Facebook accounts in this way, the hacker send a link to its victim usually open a video, a game or any thing else in which user is interested mostly a game is sent when victim clicks on the link the game starts playing, after a little time the game show login to continue when the victim enters the email and password that is saved to the hacker in a file, and he easily gets access to the victim’s account.

The process of tab napping is described above, if some URLs asks you for login then first look at the URL type if the URL is facebook.com then you can login otherwise never login another method to check a tab napping page is to enter wrong details when it ask for email and password if it starts after the wrong details then the page if fake other wise that is original, but in my view there is no any Facebook app or game which asks for login to continue.
4. Man In Middle Attacks Method To Hack Facebook
A man in middle attack can only be completed on that time when the victim and the hacker are on the same network, in this method the hacker make his victim use a HTTP connection in place of using a https connection and simply views all the details transferred between the victim and the server that also includes the emails and passwords.

As I have already described that Man in Middle attack can only be accomplish only that time when the victim and the hacker are on the same network so you just need to use https instead of http while login to your accounts, usually every social site uses the https for login be when you go to login then first check either the login I http or https. By this you can never be hacked which Man in Middle Attacks.
5. USB Hacking Method To Hack Facebook

As most of us saves the password in our browser the hacker creates a simple program in his USB and plus the USB in our computer when USB is open the program runs and all the saved passwords are saved in the USB, the hacker unplugs the USB and attack to his computer and can easily see all the passwords.

Since USB hacking can only be accomplished when a hacker has physical access to your computer, first you just let those people’s use your computer on which you can trust second never use you account on any public computers by this you can protect yourself from hacking.
