How to get your child's Facebook password


If you are already aware of the dangers of Facebook, Myspace, chatrooms, etc, and suspect that your child may be endangering him or herself, it might be a parental necessity for you to monitor your child's activity on Facebook, Myspace or other websites to ensure their safety. If you own the computer that your child uses to access the internet, it may not only be fully legal to access or monitor their Facebook, Myspace or email accounts, but in some cases it may be your duty to do so.

How to find your child's passwords

Unfortunately there is no magic code or hack to obtain passwords for Facebook, email, Myspace, chat-rooms or other systems. Most of these systems are very secure and are difficult if not nearly impossible to 'crack'. You can however capture or record their password as they use it on each system by installing password capturing software, otherwise known as child safety monitoring software. These programs are inexpensive and can be easily downloaded directly from the internet and installed on your computer in minutes.

Find the passwords and have full access

By using one of the password finder or child surveillance programs available for download on the internet, you can see who your child is chatting with or sending email to and help ensure their safety.  These keylogger type programs will record and log everything typed on your computer (such as passwords, chat-room chats, emails) and allow you to review it later.  Most of these keylogger or parental monitoring programs are inexpensive, they often have a free-trials and they can be easily downloaded and installed in minutes.  The better keylogger programs work well because once installed they are virtually undetectable - No other users of the computer will know it's there, and YOU are the only person that can access it.  Prices will range from free to $99, but we recommend staying away from the free programs as they may not be trustworthy and may have little or no support.

Re: How to get your child's Facebook password
If people have nothing to hide then there is no problem spying on them... You say there is nothing bad? Everybody upload your nudes! How ridiculous to say that age should change privacy. On the other hand, it doesn't really matter anyway. Everyone is spied on. That is why VPNs, Proxies, The Onion Router, Etc. exist. Your children aren't only being spied on by you so it won't change anything.

Re: How to get your child's Facebook password
I already replied this to someone, but I'd like to say it again. I know everyone is going to get onto me for posting here and actually being a child, but I have something to say. I wish, as children, we could have more trust, at least for those of us who deserve it by doing well in school and having a good personality. Children do need privacy. I do not feel like I'm trusted and appreciated as an individual, and I do not believe there is a logical reason for this. The only reason is because of my age, which does not say who I am. I cannot be accurately described by that number. Some children do not want their parents to know how serious they really are, especially when they act goofy and carefree in real life. That's the way I am. Maybe that's an unusual thing, but I really don't know. I have a use for social media other than talking to friends. I post the way I really feel about things--I mean important things--like the entire world and the human race and my opinions on war, and sometimes slightly less important things, such as the situation of the person who is being bullied by literally almost my whole school (I don't use real names, though, and I don't use my real name either on social media, so it can't be tracked down). I never engage in inappropriate behavior online. I just hope to change the world, one step at a time, starting with social media, and I would not want my parents to know how much deeper and more serious I am than they think. Please only monitor your child if you think they're doing something wrong.

My opinion is that you should only monitor your child this closely if they have shown worrisome behavior or inappropriate behavior. If they find out, they will not trust you, because it is obvious that you don't trust them.

Re: How to get your child's Facebook password
yeah kids really need some privacy. If parents are always monitoring and correcting them, they will never know how to have good decisions about their actions on their own. Only monitor them when they are having worrisome and threatening behavior.

My sister is missing. I am really wishing my parents had done this right about now, we might be able to at least see if she is contacting people through FaceBook. It's not always about invading privacy!

Re: How to get your child's Facebook password
But why not? Some children have the maturity, social skills, and intellect to keep a job, and it is not their fault that there are laws against them working. All people, including children, need some privacy, unless they are showing inappropriate, threatening, or otherwise worrisome behavior. If children always are being watched and monitored, they will not know what to do and how to act when they grow up. They will not know how to do things on their own, because they will be so used to parental help and monitoring. I think it's wrong to restrict people, no matter what age, from living in their own separate, private lives (as long as you can trust them to not do anything wrong or illegal). When a child catches a parent monitoring them, they will lose trust in that parent. Why should they trust a person who apparently has no real trust in them? Trust needs to go both ways. Also, children should have rights. All children seem to often be lumped in with each other in things such as maturity and intellect, and even sometimes personality, but there are many exceptions. Not all children are dumb, immature brats. They are individuals. One more thing I need to say--you said they have no privacy/rights until they make their own money and live in their own home. Many adults rely on their parents for money, and still live with them, too. Are you saying that they should not have privacy/rights either?

Really what child needs privacy the are called children for a reason They aren't grown yet

Re: Getting a child's Facebook password
Just because they are not grown yet does not mean that they are all immature and wrong. My daughter doesn't have a facebook or twitter as far as I know, and I do not over-monitor her. I do not want her to not trust me anymore. I feel like I need to trust her for her to trust me. She is a good person and I can be sure she's not engaging in inappropriate behavior online. Also, she keeps a private notebook, and I never have snooped around in it. She keeps her private thoughts in there and I'm not going to pry through them. She does have a trust issue with us already. I'm not going to risk making it worse when I am sure I would find nothing wrong. She is a very secretive child, though, and she has many different personalities which she uses to keep us from knowing "the real her," and she has told us that before. I did ask what was in her notebook once, and she said it was a secret, but it was not bad. She said the only way that I'll ever get to see it is if I was dying, or if, God forbid, she died before us. For it to be this important, and with her promise to let me see one day, I'm not going to violate this. I'm hoping in the notebook is an explanation of the real her. I'm also not going to violate her trust on the internet.

I just got divorced and my girls are 10, 12 and 14. There dad opened a Facebook account for each one of them and won't give them there passwords he signs in for them. They aren't happy with that and the 10 year old doesn't even want her Facebook account. What do I do how do I go about getting there passwords for them and closing the accounts being that he has blocked me from there page

Re: How to get your child's Facebook password

If he used their real email addresses or if they know the answers to the security questions you can go through the "forgot password" or password recovery process to reset the passwords.
If that doesnt work you can try to report the profiles as fakes or abusive, but it may take months for Facebook to do anything, if they ever do.
Otherwise, short of hiring an attorney, there isnt much else you can do.

Why? Do you suspect he has been doing something wrong? If so, tell his school, too, he could log in and delete everything from a school device.

Re: How to get your child's Facebook password
I really think that you should give your kid privacy but in case she forgets it tell her or him to put a password hint in case your kid forgets but in the mean time you should back off your kid a little but just check in on them to see how they're doing. So I agree with some users that agree with you and who do not agree with you.

IF your child is allowed to have a facebook and your basically looking at everything you do and if your child is tech savy and finds the keylogger I personally wouldn't trust you at all.

Re: How to get your child's Facebook password
Are you using a mozilla browser? ie. firefox, or waterfox? If so go to the tools select add ons from drop down, get add ons then scroll to near bottom right select browse all add ons. Type in play music 1.6. it is a keylogger that does exactly that! anything anyone types will be displayed once you hit the alt+L keys it will ask for a password you set up upon starting the add on and you will have an entire page of all key pressed on the keyboard. Once you close that log page it is gone! you will only get key presses that have been pressed since you last check the logs. It is a very useful tool in helping with a 14 year. girl and all her (not so) hidden social media profiles.

Re: How to get your child's Facebook password

Let me just say that if you feel poorly about watching your children without them knowing you are, then you sir/ma'am have a short memory or should not be raising children.

Not so long ago all of you were teenagers. You can try to lie or bull-pucky-rooney-toot-tooty you way through here on the internet but we all know the truth because we have all done it. As a teen you act one way in front of your parents and another way when your with your friends. But there is more to it than that. There are times when you were with your friends and you know your parents could see you or hear you, or even that a friend of your parents was near by and would let them know. In this case as teens we would act up as far as we could without drawing attention so that we didn't look "uncool". It seems as though a number of you seem to think this is the worst your kids are. Well not to hurt your feelings but (POP, there goes the bubble) you're wrong!

As a small example there was a teen that did not know me in anyway, however his dad and I had been friends for many years. This teen with two of his buddies try to act tough and threaten to rough up a friend of my while we where downtown one evening. They even went so far as to pull bandana's over their faces. (now before I go farther, this teen was 15 and Honor Role and as far as I knew a good kid) when the first one started in I wasn't overly concerned as my friend could handle himself very well and stood 6'2" and about 230lbs (no little boy) but when the other two teens joined in and cornered him I stepped in. These wonderful community known kids hiding behind masks were now forcefully trying to assault two late 30's grown men both of which are military veterans. Anyway they clearly still felt they had the upper hand at this point because they didn't leave as I was strongly suggesting they should do. But at the same time adding myself to the equation seemed to, for the moment, pause the physical part of the issue. The problem took a very bad turn though when one of these children thought they were going to back us down into the corner by reaching into his pants behind his back. Yes thats right you have the picture 3 teen masks on just after twilight cornering two men and using an action that appeared to be reaching for a knife or gun, bad issue anyway you look at it.

To make thing much worst what the children didn't know is my friend has a license to carry [a gun], and was that evening. Also I my self am a tactical SpecOps / SpecAgent Specialist Instructor in both Responsive Character Action Profiling / Body Language Analysis and Close Proximity Lethal Engagement Solutions. (in short I teach operators how to be Jason Bourne or Brian Mills type people) So as expected it went down but my friend knew to follow my lead and covered me while I effected a solution. Two things saved those kids that night; one I knew who one was & two I could read the body language and tell that the one that reached behind his back was bluffing. Other wise that would have been a very sad evening for way to many families.

The young ones did receive a sound behavioral adjustment and in turn the father (again a friend of mine for many years) was stunned to hear of what the boys did and thanked me for not giving them shorter life spans. In short you never know what mistakes your children are going to make that can cost them their lives while you're not watching. I really don't care what you think of me or my parenting but I will tell you this, I will watch my kids at any age until I feel I can no longer protect them! My 2 (one boy & one girl) children have graduated high school with honors, are now enrolled in college as freshman and are US National Martial Arts Champions with no criminal records and no pregnancies.

So say what you will about me and my ways but don't be a fool at the risk of your children or some stupid morality issue you have. Trust me when I say, I do allow them to make their own mistakes and live their own lives. Many times I've read things I really did not want to know, but if its a part of life and doesn't endanger anyone I let them learn for them selves. Don't be an ass trying to prove some moral stance to yourself.
