Time to Change Your Password … Again!
Well, by now, you are probably aware of the latest breach of Facebook that affects 50 MILLION users.
Yes, it’s time to update your security on that Social Media platform, regardless of whether or not you were notified that you were affected.
Steve Dotto released a really good video a couple of days ago that discusses this breach what to do about it. He suggests changing your password and setting up 2-Factor Authentication. I wholeheartedly agree! And when you change your password PLEASE don’t use a password you have ever used on any other service or form.
There are some really good tools that will generate a “strong” password for you; you only need to have a way to retrieve the password the next time you log in. The tool I use is LastPass. Yes, LastPass has had its own security issues, but because passwords stored in LastPass are encrypted – and the way they are encrypted – no one’s passwords have been stolen. LastPass is one of the best options for managing passwords.
So watch Steve Dotto’s video and change your password!
