Your Facebook inbox may be flooded with the following message:
“Please tell all the contacts in your messenger list not to accept Jayden K. Smith friendship request. He is a hacker and has the system connected to your Facebook account. If one of your contacts accepts it, you will also be hacked, so make sure that all your friends know it. Thanks. Forwarded as received.”
In the past, similar messages have used the names Anwar Jitou, Tanner Dwyer and Bobby Roberts. Frankly, mass friend requests are not only spam, but violate Facebook’s terms of service and may subject the user to account termination.
First off, accepting friends you don’t know is never a great idea. Many robot and spam accounts inundate facebook users with bogus requests, which helps them not only spread their spam intentions, but also may give access to your private information, friends list and more.
But accepting a friend request from a stranger on Facebook or merely messaging someone on Facebook Messenger cannot lead to hackers gaining access to your computer or online accounts.
Secondly, merely accepting a friend does not give another facebook user confidential information, such as a password or otherwise download files, including viruses. Certainly, do not opening any files or links you are not familiar with, as this can lead to disclosure of data, viruses or ransomware, but not by accepting friend requests on facebook.
