How You Detect If Your Facebook Account Got Hacked

If you are worried that your Facebook account possibly got hacked, you should check where your account got accessed from. The Facebook app enables you to end active sessions in case they look suspicious. This way you can detect, if someone else is using your account and what you can do about it. In this article you will learn step by step, how you should approach such situations.

Manage active sessions in Facebook app

Facebook > More > Settings > Account Settings > Security > Where you’re logged in

Open the Facebook app on your iPhone and tap the More icon in the bottom right corner. Scroll all way down and click Settings and then Account Settings in the pop-up menu.

On the next level you will see Security as one of the options on top. In the Security Settings you choose the option Where you’re logged in to show the active sessions.

End active session

This page shows you the current session on top, which you cannot end.

All other sessions can be closed. If you find unfamiliar devices or locations in this list, you should end them. Just tap the X icon on the right side of the entry. This way a session will be closed immediately without any further step.

Change password

Facebook > More > Settings > Account Settings > General > Password

If you have observed weird activities and ended the respective session, you shouldn’t forget to change your Facebook password. After all there is a good chance that someone misused your account and knows your password.

You can change the password in the Facebook app by going to More > Settings > Account Settings > General and then Password.

A safe password contains lower letters, capital letters, numbers and special characters. It should not be written down or passed on to somebody.
