No, Jayden isn’t any Hacker for Facebook Accounts


One fake message cautioning users of Facebook Messenger that they shouldn't acknowledge friend requests that apparently some hacker by the handle Jayden K Smith sends, recently, started to spread globally that resulted in bewilderment along with a storm of memes.


Similar as the majority of virus-tainted Facebook messages, the latest fake message is wholly made up to frighten users by spreading an unclear threat and then beseeching them to send the message over at each of their friends' accounts else experience some harsh consequences.


Now, there are some indications which tell the message is a lie. Just pausing and thinking what it says such as the computer linked with the user's Facebook account. Here more information is required for making the meaning clear.


Moreover, it is nonsense to think someone will hack the user should his Facebook buddy make friendship with Jayden. When anyone makes friendship with a person on Facebook, it does not enable that person to gain admission into the original individual's e-mail password. Bt.com posted this, July 10, 2017.


True, account owners must be wary about friend request on social media that strangers offer. Here security researchers from Tripwire categorically state that when users hide their passwords and names within the online profiles they have for public viewing, there's no risk whatsoever.


The researchers elaborate that for acquiring admission into an end-user's Facebook account; ill-intentioned people require stealing his username and password. Now, if that end-user hides his credentials inside some private profile on the social media which merely approved friends are let to see, there is nothing to fear that any fresh contact would hack into his account.


If by welcoming strangers to be friends can possibly result in compromise of security and privacy for committing ID-theft then the message in discussion is just a hoax.


When online, one falls into certain wild-and-wooly area. On the Internet, evildoers are aplenty wanting to hack into someone's Facebook A/C, pick up his private details and apply them for causing unending problems. Persons actually with the name Jayden K Smith wouldn't like it if they're starred within any falsity.
