blackberry storage - where do passwords from apps like facebook save on to?

My blackberry phone was stolen a few days ago. I called rogers to deactivate my sim card yesterday...however, i noticed someone hacked into my facebook through a mobile phone today. How were they able to hack into it through a mobile phone? Does blackberry save facebook passwords onto the actual phone device itself or sim card?

The data is stored on the phone itself in the Browser options.

If the SIM card was blocked, the phone would not have been able to access your accounts.

 

How was your Facebook account hacked?

How about if they used a different sim card? The password on facebook saves automatically so could they have just accessed it through that? Thnak you

Shouldn't have. If someone inserts a new SIM, it in effect "disconnects" your data account, since it is provisioned to your SIM card.

Nope, stores it in the device memory.

Not the SIM card, not the media card.

 

Have you read this?
