Facebook Hacked: Change Your Password to Protect Yourself

CBC is reporting that Facebook was hacked again. While it doesn’t look like huge numbers of accounts were compromised, it is worth changing your password to protect yourself.

And regardless of whether your account was compromised or not, changing your passwords regularly is one of the best things you can do to protect your online identities and accounts. You can learn about other password best practices in this article from Law Practice magazine.


  1. To be honest, there are reports all the time from people like CBS claiming facebook has been hacked. You have to remember that Facebook has over 800million users so hack attempts are always going to be common, but usually on very low levels and nothing to do with the Facebook platform itself – which has proven to be very secure. Most hack attempts are made by phishing and social engineering. Just a quick google search shows sites like http://www.hack-facebook-account.com offering hack tools, but it’s best to stay away from them as most steal your passwords themselves. Regular passwords changes are always recommended though or use complex passwords and then a tool like LastPass http://www.lastpass.com.

    Thanks for the heads up though, greeting from ca
