The 'Jayden K. Smith' Hacker Was A Hoax The Whole Time

 

If you've been on Facebook lately, you might have come across a friend request by someone you're not so familiar with or a message from a friend that doesn't seem to make sense.

Jayden K. Smith has been reported as a hacker and users are warned to not accept his friend request. The questionable message you get from your friends might look a little something like this:

"Please tell all the contacts in your Messenger list, not to accept Jayden K. Smith friendship request. He is a hacker and has the system connected to your Facebook account. If one of your contacts accepts it, you will also be hacked, so make sure that all your friends know it. Thanks. Forward as received." 

The whole thing is perceived as a hoax. Multiple pieces of information in the warning doesn't add up. 

First off, more information is needed. Secondly, it doesn't make sense that your account can get hacked if someone on your friends list accepts the request. When you're friends with someone, Facebook doesn't magically provide anyone with your personal information.

So if you recieve this message, don't worry, odds are you're not being hacked.
