Hackers in Messenger

I reviewed the following message in Facebook messenger from multiple people recently.

Please tell all the contacts in your messenger list not to accept anything from Fabrizio Brambilla. He has a photo with a dog. He is a hacker and has the system connected to your messanger account. If one of your contacts accepts it, you will also be hacked, so make sure that all your friends know it. Thanks. Forwarded as received.

Hold your finger down on the message. At the bottom in the middle it will say forward. Hit that then click on the names of those in your list and it will send to them

I decided since I am bringing my blog back mostly for guidance on things like these, this would be a perfect subject to start with. I want to be sure I am clear on this next statement.

Your account cannot be compromised by a friend accepting a friend request.

Now that I have made that clear, I want to make another statement that I hope I’m very clear on.

Your account cannot be compromised by accepting a friend request.

With those being said, I want to say thank you to those who did send this warning to me. I appreciate your better safe than sorry mentality.
