A recent new way to hack accounts on Facebook is widely spread on the network.
This warning came from Facebook itself, where it is reported that a mock-up message tells users that their account has been cloned.
The message is sent from your friends list.
Facebook cloning happens when someone creates an account and steals photos including personal information and sends them to the network.
In the message is written:
Hello, I have received another friendship request from you yesterday, which I did not accept. You may need to check your account. Hold your finger pressed until the ‘forward’ button appears and then send it to your friends. Good luck!”
If you accidentally get this message, your account is not hacked but it’s a trick to scam people.
