  • It depends. You can hack by using a password, by having a trojan on the computer being used or by using the wireless account they ar using.

    In addition, if a link was clicked that shouldn't have been, it can lead to someone being able to hack the account. The computers should be checked for viruses and you should be using a secure wireless network. Also, you might want to change the email/and or password to email that the account is connected and make the password a short sentence that include uppercase letters and numbers.

  • DH says that no it is not that easy to do.
    He suggests that it might be you SO or someone who would have his permission and passwords.

  • I'm not sure how easy it would be. I would change your password, and see if that puts a stop to it. If you can, use a different computer to change the password, and then run a scan on your computer to see if there's any viruses on it that might be allowing someone access.

    If changing the password doesn't stop it, I'd contact Facebook directly and explain what's happening, and ask them if they can help you figure out what's going on.
