Bruteforcing Facebook Passwords

Published by hackingplayground on

Hi friends, today i’m going to talk about how a hacker can bruteforce a facebook passwords.

Prepping the attack

before we get started, we need to download this script that will allow a cracker to gain access to Facebook accounts. Here is the command to type to download the tool.

git clone && cd Facebook-Bruter

Changing Permissions

We just downloaded the Facebook-Bruter now we need to change the permissions of the program so we can use it, so type in this command to do just that.

chmod +x

Now to run the program, just issue this command.



As you can see it’s very simple tool to use.

What you need to know before the attack

All you need to know to crack a facebook password is their email address, but.. you need a wordlist, the wordlist must contain their password.

How to generate a wordlist.

A word list can be generated using cupps or some other program that comes with Kali, there are heaps of wordlist generators.

Heres a link to cupps:

To install cupps just type this.

git clone

This will download it from git hub.

HINT: The larger the wordlist the more chance you have of bruteforcing their password but it will take longer.

Let’s Crack

Here’s a quick video of me cracking a test account I created on facebook.

This should only be used for password recovery only!!
