Compared to other sites that promote BH and illegal stuff. HF keep removing illegal and harmful content while educating users on the result of hacking.

I started using this site in 2012. It helped me as a gateway into the world of hacking. Now I have a full time infosec job. This wouldn't have been possible if the allure of the forum and hacking didn't draw me in when I was younger. Ignore the trolls posting here, they just got banned for not following the rules. It's a great community, a ton of intel chatter on here!

I spent years on the forum and the experience has been nothing but amazing. Administrator is cool, community is great and even if you are not there to learn how to hack you will definitely learn something new.
There is no forum that managed to survive this long and not turn into a toxic cesspool. So congrats to Jesse Labrocca! Keep it up.

Tip for consumers: Use contracts if you are doing deals on site.

Joined the forum in 2017, didn't know much at first about the forum and was a bit confused. With time, i met a lot of people who are skilled in different fields from Programming to business and crypto. I learned a lot from the guides and tutorials posted for free on the forum.

Owner doesn't know how to run a site, bans anyone because he can't take any form of criticism on his website. I don't recommend buying ranks or anything, it's a waste of money. Jesse (the owner) also cooperates with law enforcement. Will be a dead forum here in the future.

The admin "Omniscient" acts out of emotion and bans anyone who has a different opinion than his and regularly lashes out in fits of rage and "roasts" and bans his community members. To be honest, he has had a hard year, his site/main source of income in on a strong decline, he's trying to pump out update after update which aren't working. The site is a shambles and a shame to the real hacker community.

The hacking side of the forum is the LEAST active, this is more of a hangout for techies rather than a hacking forum.

A lot of uses on this site are young, inexperienced and immature and they make up a majority percentage of the community.

**Have a look at the images. He bans people for suggesting ideas and trying to help the site. This was a 7 year member which had all positive reputation and contributions.

Unlike these other reviews HackForums is PERFECT, they only hate because they were stupid enough to get scammed on this forum. Just play it safe and stay away from the marketplace if you don't know what you're doing. I've learned so much from HF and have accumulated a good sum of money from various different techniques and tutorials on this forum. I would recommend it to anyone looking to make some easy money.

I found this forum 2 years ago I think, yes its full of scammers but you have to protect yourself. I learnt a lot there. But since the title is hackforums, i dont consider it hacking community. Its more about money methods.

HackForums is a community for people to bond and talk about anything. It doesn't even have to be tech/hack related. If you are looking for a forum full of people with knowledge, join HackForums. (Stay out of the E-Book marketplace though)

This website has a lot to offer in terms of computing fields. Members from cool to edgy can be found here which is nice for me. Scammers are everywhere but it can be avoided if you just follow the precaution set by the administrator and staff.

Overall, my forum experience here are great.

HackForums (HF) is a really unique corner of the internet and has been a website I've come to love over the past few years. In 2011 I registered on HF just because it was a common name I heard around on the internet. Various websites and outlets would have content related to HF or it was just very well known. After registering, there has always been a new feature, new update, or new posts dragging me back. There are tons of forums that try to copy HF but fall short of achieving the same type of community and administration as HF has. It's a great place to check out and be apart of. My personal favorite sections include the Lounge, White-Hat sections, and hacking sections. I'm huge in education and love helping teach others. This is a great place to hold conversations, spread and gain experience, and just be apart of something. HF does it's job of being a forum, and it does a good job at that.

HF is an amazing place where you can meet tonnes of people. You can make money, have a general chat, learn about a lot of topics I don't think you can find anywhere else. I'd recommend HF to anyone trying to start up an online business, or wanting to just genuinely meet people.

Tip for consumers: Upon registering, make sure to read ALL rules so you're familiar with what to do and what not to do.

Community is friendly and honest and will point you in the right direction if you are in need of assistance. There is a massive amount of resources that have been included over the many years, rare gems can be found if you are willing to put in the effort and time to dig through the search results. Highly skilled people if you know who to look for that can provide a wealth of information. Though having been on the forums for a few years, I am still surprised at the treasures that I can uncover.

Too many clones out there but one thing for sure: Hack Forums was and will stay as the best place to discuss and conversate about anything Tech/Hack related. The staff team makes the environment friendly for new users and the developer team is constantly pushing out updates to keep up with users needs. 5/5!

After being there for so long you'd figure I'd be bored of it, however, it's quite the opposite. The site is constantly being updated and worked on, the community is indeed one of a kind, and the information you can glean is extensive.

Whether you're into cryptocurrency, selling a product, hacking, or just having good discussions this is the place to be. Highly recommend taking a shot and joining Hackforums.

HackForums isn't what you would expect. When you hear the word "hack forums" you immediately think of a forum with a bunch of black hats and carders and what not, but this couldn't be farther from the truth. While it's true that HF does allow discussion on electronics, technology, and the like, as one would expect; It's more geared toward marketing and learning, with a secondary additive of gaming.

The community is an acquired taste, but the staff is top notch and the admins aren't the run of the mill children you'd come to expect from other forums with like names. Give it a chance before making any judgements.

Tip for consumers: Read the rules / help docs / wiki. It's a lot more useful than you would think and would answer what is probably already been asked 900 times.
