Facebook Login with Python

In this article, we will see how to log into a Facebook account using Python and the power of selenium.

from selenium import webdriver

from time import sleep

 

usr = input ( `Enter Email Id:`

pwd = input ( `Enter Password:`

  

driver = webdriver.Chrome ()

driver.get ( ` https://www.facebook.com/ ` )

print ( "Opened facebook" )

sleep ( 1 )

 

username_box = driver.find_element_by_id ( `email` )

username_box.send_keys (usr)

print ( " Email Id entered " )

sleep ( 1 )

  

password_box = driver.find_element_by_id ( `pass` )

password_box.send_keys (pwd)

print ( "Password entered" )

 

login_box = driver.find_element_by_id ( ` loginbutton` )

login_box.click ()

 

print ( " Done " )

input ( `Press anything to quit` )

driver.quit ()

print ( " Finished " )

See how such a concise piece of code can automate things for you.

Bonus:
For security purposes, we can also enter a password without displaying it on the screen . To do this, we need to enable another module called getpass . Now, with one change in the password, we can enter the password without displaying it on the screen.

from getpass import getpass

pwd = getpass ( `Enter Password:`

Getpass asks the user for a password without repeating. It basically allows you to enter your password without showing it on the screen.

Similarly, you can also automate many other things like twitter, tweet, log out of facebook, and more.
