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.

Read above.

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.

Unfortunately it happens all the time in my experience.

I did that with my ex-girlfriends account and went all through it.
She found that in her history Monday and is saying she will call the police. Should i be worried?

The police hate to get into that kind of stuff between bf's and gf's.
They would be inundated I guess.
I tried to get my ex in trouble when she broke in to my account, and they just blew it off and said guard your password better next time...
