How to find out who hacked FB account?


Recommended Posts


My friend got their facebook and twitter account hacked.  Do any members know if it's possible to find out

1) who could have done it?  (unlikely I know)

2) location of the hack?  (if Q1 is unlikely, at least by narrowing the location of the compromise can help narrow down who did it).

TIA : )

For you or them, no. Report it to Facebook and let them investigate it.


I'll predict your reply to this, we did and they ignored it. In which case I doubt you'll get anywhere. The police are unlikely to care so not worth bothering with them.

I think facebook has logs available in your account to show history of user agents that have logged into your account.

This is also a notification emailed to   registered email address.

I get alerts sent to me if I use a new webbrowser on the same desktop (new user agent)

check the IP addresses logged in too. You can reset the password and then login and check your user history in twitter settings under:


Facebook probably has something like this but the way they hide menus and settings is a PITA. Also, would suggest possibly using 2FA but that isn't fullproof and who really wants to give twitter and facebook your phone info. I know I don't.
