Welcome to my main guide that will teach you how to hack a Facebook account easily and completely. You don’t need to be a technical expert but you do need to avoid FB hacking scams.
I’ll look at who and why people would want to hack Facebook in the first place then cover ways to hack that really work. This is a main section and it will link out to other Facebook hacks discussed on this website giving you a great in depth resource.
I’ll also cover the so called FB hacking tools that seem to be all over the internet right now and explain how these are basically worthless scams!
As always here on AcisNI.com I only cover legal and ethical hacking. It is legal to hack Facebook on your children’s phones for example but you can’t legally hack your wife’s or husband’s FB account!

If you’ve had a look around this website you’ll have noticed that I write a lot about online security and keeping your kids safe online. One way to protect them is to keep watch over their online activities.
Many parents have turned to using spy apps or monitoring software in order to know what they are doing. You don’t need to invade their privacy totally but having the tools to know what is going on or if you have specific concerns, can save a lot of heartache.
With the popularity of Facebook and how people use it for messages you can’t really keep an eye on activity if you don’t hack it. If you are monitoring your kids online behavior you must be able to see what they are up to on their FB accounts.
This main guide should be read alongside my other Facebook hacking articles:
See How to Hack Facebook Without Password Change – pretty self explanatory but a useful addition to this guide.
Facebook Messenger Spy Apps looks at how you can hack or spy on everything they do on the FB messenger platform, not just Facebook!
Have a look through all the information to get an in depth picture of what works and what doesn’t when it comes to hacking Facebook.
If you search online for FB hacking articles you will see lots of websites claiming they can do this but I have done a lot of research on this. In the next section I will explain what is happening, but first let’s look at what really works!
The best and easiest way to hack someone’s Facebook profile and account is by using a good quality spy app. Using spy apps to hack Facebook gives you complete access to everything they do on the Facebook platform including all messages sent and received on FB Messenger.
They are easy to use and can be completely hidden so that they don’t know you are monitoring their activity. Most importantly, this method actually works.
Let’s take a look at three spy apps that I can recommend fully – because I use them and test them myself and have done for years now.
mSpy is the best selling spy app on the market with over 1 million registered users. For most people needing to monitor all activity on Facebook mSpy will be your best option.
It has been around for years now and has proved reliable and advanced – with new features released regularly. Reliability is really important when choosing a spy app as there are many that do not work as promised. I can’t stress this enough!
mSpy is available for Android phones and the iPhone including their tablet versions. All you need is an internet connection and you can quickly install the app on the target phone.
For regular spy apps you do need physical access to the phone for at least a few minutes. mSpy do have a No Jailbreak version for monitoring Apple devices. For this version there is no software to install so it can often be done remotely.
The No Jailbreak version works by monitoring the phone backups sent to the user’s iCloud account. To use it you need to have their iCloud username and password. This method will also work for monitoring Facebook activity.
Once installed the mSpy app allows you to hack Facebook completely and in secret (the app is very well hidden from the user). Everything they do on FB is logged and reported to the mSpy online dashboard.
It will report all activity on Facebook Messenger. Here you will see every message, photo and video shared on the app. Even if they send secret messages or delete the messages after sending, they will still be logged and reported.
You sign in to the online reporting dashboard from any internet connection including your own phone – from anywhere at any time. Here you will see everything including messages sent and received. You don’t need to have the target phone again and all reporting is done remotely.
In addition there is a keylogger feature that records every keystroke made on the user’s phone keypad. This is extremely powerful and allows you to see the usernames and passwords on the phone including their Facebook account login.
Now you can actually sign in to their account and see everything.
Of course mSpy allows you to do so much more than just hack someone’s Facebook account. The mSpy app allows you to hack their phone – if you hack their phone you have access to everything they do on the phone. All social media and messenger apps, all text messages sent and received, logs of all phone calls and GPRS tracking features. They have a long list of features available.
I cover the main features in my main mSpy review – find out more about mSpy here. It also explains how the No Jailbreak version works. I have tested mSpy for hacking a FB account and it works very well.
FlexiSPY is another high quality spy app that I recommend on AcisNI.com. It has a long track record in the spy app market and has proved reliable. mSpy and FlexiSPY work in similar ways and share many of the same features. There are a few differences though. FlexiSPY does not have a No Jailbreak version for the iPhone.
For hacking Facebook on an iPhone using FlexiSPY you must Jailbreak it first. This is a problem for many users. There is no working Jailbreak available for the latest versions of the iPhone. One workaround is to use a tethered Jailbreak but this has some limitations. I explain all on my main FlexiSPY page here.
This makes FlexiSPY best suited to hacking FB on Android devices. Another key difference with FlexiSPY is the ability to listen to live calls and even record calls. This also works for calls made using Facebook Messenger!
It is a very advanced feature and is only available on the most expensive product – FlexiSPY Extreme. If you want to be able to listen to calls made on Facebook this is the app for you.
In terms of general reporting FlexiSpy and mSpy work in much the same way. You can see FB messages and all activity. Then of course you have all the extra spy app features.
Like the mSpy app FlexiSPY can be hidden from the user and they will not know they have been hacked.
Mobistealth is the third app on my recommended list. This is an older spy app but still performs well and is an alternative to mSpy and FlexiSPY.
It is slightly cheaper but has fewer features than the other two. It does have Facebook hacking as a main feature. It can monitor all activity on Facebook (except voice calls) and is much the same as the other two.
If you are interested in the other spy app features then MobiStealth is still packed full of useful tools. All the standard monitoring is covered.
Where it falls behind the others is in the range of advanced features. For example it cannot hack as many different messenger and social media apps. Snapchat Hacking for example is exclusive to mSpy. Compared to other spy apps MobiStealth is still a strong app worth a look.
That covers my three main recommendations for Facebook hacking apps that work. These apps can be used legally and ethically. They are easy to set up and use unlike some other hacking methods I’ll discuss later.
If you search this subject looking for free online FB hacking tools you’ll notice a substantial group of websites. Some even look quite similar and they have the same operating principle. To scam you and make money.
They claim that all you need to do is enter the username / FB ID of the person whose Facebook account you want to hack. Then they will magically collect all their FB activity and you can download it to see everything!
Some claim they will hack the Facebook password so you can then log in and see their account.
Sounds great – sounds too good to be true? I have personally tested a number of these sites and they all follow a similar pattern. First off the sites make an effort to look legitimate – often showing testimonials and comments from satisfied customers.
This is designed to gain your confidence but it is easily faked. So you enter the Facebook ID you want to hack.
Now the screen will look like it is doing things. There might be a status bar loading or notices that “verification is working” or “hacking in progress”. They are clever – people love to see something happening while they wait. This must be legit because all this stuff is happening!
When it stops you get a notification Complete or “Congratulations Facebook has been hacked successfully!” And a button to click – to get your hacked password or data.
This is where the fun starts. You think you are so close to getting the information you need – you are excited! You click to see your data and you get a popup – to get your information all you need to do is fill out this 2 minute survey!
The offer may change slightly between sites but the trick is the same. You must fill out a survey or click on some adds. In the interests of investigation I have tried a number of these and gone through the surveys.
Of course you usually need to enter your best email. I used a disposable email to stay safe. Guess what – after all this, they don’t provide any Facebook data. No Facebook passwords no activity. Most came up with an “error” or try again notice.
What’s going on? I’m afraid this is an old internet scam with a modern twist. They hook you in promising to provide secret data that you really want. They make it all look legitimate and show the progress. Now you are close and your defenses are down.
You fill out a survey and give your email – something you wouldn’t have done at the start. Classic marketing! No information is provided because the whole thing is fake.
They make money from the survey you filled out. The company behind the survey has your best email and will now sell that on to other marketers or try to sell to you directly.
This is a very lucrative scam and unfortunately these sites or “tools” are all over the search results. Save yourself a lot of time and hassle – Do Not use these tools. They do not work!
These scam tools target many of the main messenger type apps such as Instagram, Snapchat, WhatsApp, Kik and Telegram. Avoid them all.
I have yet to hear from Anyone who has managed to hack any Facebook information using these methods. I think that speaks volumes.
The above examples should be enough to put you on your guard. They claim to be free methods to hack Facebook. We all love to get something for free don’t we?
I’ll break it to you gently. You will not find a way to hack FB for free and any site that says you can should be avoided.
I’ve covered some ways to hack Facebook that actually work – using spy apps. I’ve also covered the scam online tools that do not work.
There are other ways that you can be hacked but most will not help you as an individual trying to monitor your kid’s FB account! Let’s have a look now.
Like many large websites and corporations Facebook has been targeted in the past by hackers. These are public hacks – where hackers target the website to steal users information.
Of course we are all vulnerable to these hacks and they seem to be happening more often. It’s a battle between companies and hackers as they try to outdo each other. These FB hacks are not targeted at any single individual but are attempts at mass gathering of information.
They are still dangerous, potentially exposing financial data and invading our privacy. In most cases of public hacks the company will tell you to change passwords and usernames and often this is enough to secure your account going forward.
Phishing is a well documented method of hacking and has been around for years in different forms. Again a phishing hack is unlikely to be used to target an individual. They are usually set up to gather information by casting a wide net.
They can be complex and take a lot of effort on behalf of the hackers. To be worth their while they tend to target a large group of people.
Phishing scams can take various forms but the basic principle is the same in most cases. The hackers set up fake websites or login screens to mimic the site being targeted – in this case Facebook.They send out mass emails asking people to change passwords and directing them to the fake page. If you do this they will have your login details and your accounts can be hacked.
They target all sorts of sites but financial sites are the most lucrative for them. Banks, credit card companies and PayPal have been popular targets. They have been used to target less secure accounts such as Facebook and Snapchat.
Hacking one account can often give common passwords used for other accounts. Due to the complexity of setting up phishing scams it is an unlikely way for someone to target your FB account individually.
Have a look at this site – it lists some recent phishing hacks.
If someone manages to hack your cell phone they can potentially hack everything on the phone. They can use this to hack into your Facebook. Think of everything you do on your phone and then think how a hacked phone can compromise everything!
As I mentioned before cell phone spy apps are one way your phone can be hacked easily … and so too your Facebook account.
I have an in-depth guide on Phone Hacking – it covers many different ways that your phone can be targeted. Your cell phone is probably the most vulnerable point in your online security.
Having your Facebook account hacked is a scary thought for many people but there are things you can do. A lot depends on the method used to perform the hack in the first place.
I have a guide on how to tell if your Facebook is hacked which covers signs to look for. You should also check out my article on how to tell if your cell phone is hacked. Both these will help you to see what kind of hacking you are dealing with.
If the hack is a public data breach Facebook will likely contact you and tell you to change your password. This should be good enough to secure your account in future but of course your data could have already been used.
You should change all sensitive passwords – things like your bank accounts and credit cards. After any public data hack you should take these extra steps to secure your phone and accounts.
If your Facebook account has been hacked by a phishing scam or other broadly targeted methods you should immediately change and secure all important accounts. Closely monitor your financial accounts and notify your banks if you are concerned.
I you think you have been hacked by a spy app there are ways to solve your problems. I have a lot of resources on online security here.
Spy apps can be removed easily by performing a factory reset on your cell phone. I have a detailed guide on how to remove spy apps and also a great guide on ways to unhack your cell phone. Use both these articles to get a clear understanding on how to get rid of hackers.
Security is a big part of this website with lots of helpful resources. If you are really struggling I have a Premium Security Ebook that covers step by step everything you will need to know to find, remove and stop spy apps. So far it has helped over 1,000 readers!
When it comes to hacking Facebook you must understand the legal implications. Most hacking methods are illegal. I only recommend legal and ethical hacking – as in protecting your children from online dangers.
Whatever your motivation to hack someone’s Facebook, stay legal and avoid the scams. Spy apps offer a working method suitable for most people’s needs. They are practical and actually get the job done but you must choose a reliable spy app.

Thanks for reading.
