Step 6: The BOT
There is also a bot that can be fun to play with and has lot of options as shown below. However, use extreme caution. We are not responsible if the bot breaks your facebook account permanently. Only for educational purposes.
This bot can perform the following functions:
[ 01 ]auto reactions
[ 02 ] auto comment
[ 03 ] auto poke
[ 04 ] accept all friend requests
[ 05 ] delete all posts in your timeline
[ 06 ] delete all friends
[ 07 ] stop following all friends
[ 08 ] delete all photo albums
As you can see those functions are pretty extreme. If you delete any of your data you will not be able to recover it. Even if you can recover it will take a long time. That’s why I will not recommend you to use this.
How does it work?
This tool uses facebooks own graphing algorithm to find and retrieve data. To put it in simple terms its an automated bot that will fetch data such as email and mobile number as shown in the above examples. The moment people give their data and phone number to facebook it can be easily accessed unless you explicitly put restrictions on data access.
