Default Re: Hacking another person's Facebook account -- Is it illegal?

If somebody leaves their password carelessly on the desk in school for all to see, I don't see why THAT is hacking if we then use it to access the account.

You can't legally enter into somebody's account just because they made a mistake, and you found their password.

It makes perfect sense to me.
I see nothing illogical about preventing unauthorized access, however it occurs.
