Facebook users tempted to snoop on their friends’ accounts by hacking into them should really think twice, especially when they come across a site offering such services.
Security researcher Joshua Long said the “Hack Facebook” site “works” indeed—but it is the user who wants to hack other accounts who ends up having his or her own account hacked instead.

“(T)he site tricks wannabe hackers into sending texts to a premium SMS number (81073), which leads to charges on their next phone bill. The site may also collect login details that could later be used to try to hack into the would-be hacker’s various online accounts (Facebook or otherwise), and of course once the spammers have your phone number they might also send you text message spam (or sell your number to other spammers),” Long said in a blog post.
