I am warning people about this because some of my other friends are having the same problem. Make sure you secure your Facebook profile as well as you can. Be careful who you send friend request to as well as accept friend request.
Has anyone else here have or had that problem?
If they keep figuring out your password again and again, it's probably because they hacked your computer, not your facebook account. Basically, one attack I know of is where the attacker changes your local DNS which basically means that every time you type in Welcome to Facebook - Log In, Sign Up or Learn More
, it will look like the Facebook page in every single way and even say facebook.com in the url bar, but it is NOT facebook, it's the attackers own page and every time you log in to facebook, you log in to his own site and then he clocks what you entered and then redirects you to your facebook account so you're none the wiser.
If this is the case, you should be aware that they can do this to anything whatsoever that you use, even paypal.
