Hack facebook using android
Let’s make this simple with an example. Consider two persons A and B using the same public WiFi network. The information sent and received between the device and WiFi hot-spot is done in the form of packets. These packets are not secured and can be access by any other device connected to same network. If Person A is using Facebook, his log-in credentials are sent in the form of packets which Person B can access and read them. In fact, Person B can modify them. Not only log-in credentials, everything you use within your browser can be seen and modified by anyone else as long as you are connected to that network.

But now it can be done using any Android phone with root access (we shall talk about this later). The main reason for using Android phone is simplicity. It works same as PC, in terms of speed and accuracy. It has same number of tools as PC. And when you are in crowd, you can simply take out your mobile and do some hacking anonymously.
