The hobby of Facebook Hacking is becoming more and more popular

Lockdown has created the need for many people to try new hobbies. However, some internet users have chosen to pursue very strange hobbies. The number of Google searches related to the phrase "how to hack" increased in April 2020, when NordVPN experts looked at what exactly people were trying to hack. The results showed that half of users in the UK (46%) wanted to learn how to log in to someone else’s Facebook account, while a third of users wanted to access Wi-Fi (33%).


Researchers analyzed Google's monthly search terms and found an average of 171.490 hack searches worldwide.

"Facebook is the most popular SOCIAL MEDIA for access to third party websites. According to the Dark Web Price Index, this is why Facebook accounts sell for $ 75. Once Facebook accounts are in the hands of a cyber criminal, they can open Instagram gates or give access to online stores that hold data credit cards and more, ”says Daniel Markuson, a digital data expert at NordVPN.

The top 3 countries in Facebook hack searches are:

  • India 26%
  • The Philippines (19%)
  • United States (13%)

What else do people want to hack?

When analyzing the volume of keywords associated with "hack", NordVPN researchers found that Wi-Fi comes second on the list of most desirable intrusions. Wi-Fi has always been target, but interest increased when people were excluded and had to work or attend classes at home. The top 3 countries where people want to take advantage of their neighbors' Wi-Fi network are India (23%), the Ινδονησία (13%) and United States (8%).
