Can you go to jail for hacking someone's accounts online?

ANSWER #3 of 5

I don't think you can go to jail for , say , hacking a profile on Facebook , unless it has secret stuff that the public can't know . You may get fined for hacking famous people and such. I've never heard of people actually going to jail for that.
What I have heard is that you can go to jail for hacking into government webites and releasing data from it. So, it does depend where you live and what youve hacked.
