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.

You make me physically sick. I feel sorry for your daughter. Just be aware that being so nosy will make your daughter resent you. There is scientific evidence that kids with control-freaks like yourself for parents tend to be the ones that go off the rails in adult hood. Thank you for helping me realise how lucky I am to have such a wonderful mother as opposed to one like you.

Wow- even i didnt realize this.. But of course, before anyone takes your statement seriously, we are going to need a link to this evidence and data..

Some science on the issue:

"In adolescence, the brain’s frontal lobe, responsible for such important functions as reasoning, planning and judgment, is not as well-connected to the rest of the brain by myelin, or “white matter,” as it is in an older individual. Because of the immaturity of their brains, adolescents are less capable than adults of rational thought processes."

From Harvard Magazine

 

well that doesnt prove what what James posted.. it just proves what we already know: Kids can be dumber until they grow up!

It wasn't meant to.  It was my response to James' thought process and the similar thought processes of the other adolescents who truly believe they have all the answers, know better or are really outsmarting their parents.  Good luck with that. 

 

You don't need to 'hack' (this is not hacking it is logging but it doesn't matter) you are able to ask them or go through their account with them. _______________________________________________________________________________________________ if they get defensive then you tell them "your mom has every right to keep tabs on these things"(said by anonymous visitor) or something similiar in the end they will hate you for an hour or more after you finding out some secrets that you shouldn't of known. _______________________________________________________________________________________________ If they are not defensive then you must have a great relationship with your child and that is great which means you don't need to check their FaceBook/MySpace/Bebo/Twitter etc. they will proably tell you every spec of detail that is on their page(account interface) _______________________________________________________________________________________________ If they are not defensive but have innapropiate material on their account then they don't think there is anything wrong with the virtual information (innapropiate material) and you are better off explaing why you tought other wise or just let it go. _______________________________________________________________________________________ And another huge tip! Make deals with children because children of this century are very intelligent and they won't think you are unfair this way. ______________________________________________________________________________________________ If they are not defensive and understand what is wrong with it all then they proably read article like so. _________________________________________________________________________________________ *Most children delete messages and info posted on walls so check outbox or contact web developers. _____________________________________________________________________________________________ *The website developers are very kind and helpful and will give you info or passwords if parency is proven(but you really shouldn't like I said)

 "Make deals with children because children of this century are very intelligent and they won't think you are unfair this way. .."? Making a deal with a child is allowing them to have the upper hand and get what they want.  You don't negotiate with a child.  

I don't negotiate with parents who check my emails and personal info behind my back.

If your parents negotiate with you, they are making a mistake.  If your parents need to check on your internet actions, then maybe you cannot be trusted.  Sometimes parents check on their kids out of worry because there are so many creeps out there who take full advantage of a kids trust.  

 

 

Thats isn't hacking. People who say they hack have no respect for those of us who actually can. Leave your kids alone and stop pretending that you can hack things. You can't. I feel bad for your kids. I cannot imagine what it would be like if my parents were stalkers.
