Facebook is always a target for hackers due to the amount of people using it.
The latest phishing scam is difficult to recognize.
Hackers created their own “Log in With Facebook” pop-up window. It is almost an exact clone of the login screen you get when a page give you the option to log in using Facebook.
How can you tell if it’s legitimate?
There are two ways to tell if the pop-up is legitimate.
1: If you have your password save it will automatically fill itself into the new window; if it doesn’t fill in it’s not real.
2: Try to move the pop-up window out of the browser screen. If it won’t go all the way or the edges remain on the browser, it’s malicious.
A real pop-up screen will be able to be dragged anywhere you want.
What to do if you already filled in the pop-up:
Go into your Facebook settings and log out of all the devices that you are logged into and then change your password.
