Facebook is cleaning up after a major security incident exposed the account data of millions of users. What’s already been a rocky year after the Cambridge Analytica scandal, the company is scrambling to regain its users trust after another security incident exposed user data.
Last summer, hackers pulled off a huge hack on over 50 million Facebook accounts. You may have noticed that today you could not access your account, had trouble getting in, or received a message from Facebook telling you about an issue. This is the reason for all the commotion.
Even if your account is not of the ones affected, now would be a good time to do things like change your password, switch to two-step authentication, and other housekeeping cleanup you may have been neglecting.
