Smith is not trying to hack your Facebook account

Hack fact: Jayden K Smith is not hacking your Facebook

Another fake Facebook warning is circulating throughout the social media site Monday.

Like so numerous viral posts that came before it, this one warns you against adding a certain Facebook user - this time named Jayden K. Smith - for fear of having your profile hacked.

Forward this to your friends and tell them not to accept friend requests from anybody they don't know or from suspicious groups, up to and including strangers named Jayden K Smith. Forwarded as received." It adds: "Hold your finger down on the message. The message is sent via Facebook messenger with a warning of a hacker with that name having a system connected to your Facebook account.

Fortunately for all of us who are pretty easy going about adding new friends on Facebook or Messenger, you have nothing substantial to fear from Jayden K. Smith.

Such hoaxes are fairly routine on Facebook, using various names such as Anwar Jitou and Bobby Roberts, the paper says.

However, while Jayden K. Smith is NOT a hacker, he does exist. So if Jayden K. Smith were doing this, Facebook would handle the situation quickly. They could do this directly, perhaps over chat, or by sharing a link that you click which then spoofs the Facebook login page and steals your credentials after you log in.

There is no evidence that Smith is a real person.nor is he related to Will Smith.

The Jayden K Smith hoax began to reach the United Kingdom over the weekend. They seem to get that it is a hoax, but are just laughing about it. Sue O'Connell said, "Trump announces new head of World Cyber Security Task Force: Jayden K. Smith".

It's not just Facebook where the warnings have appeared.

How do I avoid scams on Facebook?

And of course, the people of Twitter were all too happy to have a few good laughs at the expense of Facebookers.

You can find it more information from Facebook here.

Let's backtrack for a moment to bring those who may not be familiar with Jayden K. Smith up to speed.
