What to do for this breach

We recommend you take these steps to keep your personal info safe and protect your digital identity.

Change your password

Make this password unique and different from any others you use. A good strategy to follow is to combine two or more unrelated words to create an entire passphrase.

Update other logins using the same password

Reusing passwords turns a single data breach into many. Now that this password is out there, hackers could use it to get in to other accounts.

Use email aliases

Giving out your real email address makes it easier for hackers or trackers to find your passwords or target you online. A service like Firefox Relay hides your real email address while forwarding emails to your real inbox.

Try Firefox Relay

Set up two-factor authentication (2FA)

Many websites offer 2FA as an extra security measure. This requires another piece of information to log in to your account, such as a one-time code you receive via text.
