What would you do when your friend's Facebook or IG account got hacked? You know your photos would be vulnerable as the hackers would be able to see your photos on his/her Facebook account.

I don't think the photos matter because they are already visible, it's social media after all. The problems arise when the hackers pretend to be your friend. Plenty of people have lost money on that sort of scam.

Get your friend to reclaim her accounts (google the process) and then set a more secure password.
