  • Facebook recently announced that a hack that compromised at least 50 million of its users that could also have given the hackers access to other apps. It’s a security issue that has captured the attention of Consumer Warrior Clark Howard. Clark is urging all Facebook users to rethink about the way they use the social media site and their account information.  “Take this as a warning.” Clark says even if some users didn’t get the message from Facebook alerting them their accounts were one of the millions compromised – they’re not out of the woods just yet. He suggests changing your password and creating your own personal account for the websites you have linked to your Facebook account. “There’s too much risk. You’re giving criminals the keys to the kingdom, they break into your Facebook they then have access to all these other accounts of yours that you’ve signed into through Facebook.” Clark says the username or passwords for your social media accounts should not be the same as your financial account information. Clark says hackers trying to get into your social media account is just the beginning.  READ MORE: Think twice before using Facebook to log into other apps & websites Clark says criminals are ultimately after money and the most direct path to that is by hacking someone’s bank open. Clark if someone has the same log-in information as their bank account login then they are leaving themselves open and vulnerable.  He recommends not using the same username and passwords to other unrelated accounts because it could lead to trouble that you do not cause but suffer the results of.  LISTEN: Clark Howard’s latest podcast
  • Late last month, social media giant Facebook announced a massive security breach impacting millions of its users. Now new information is coming from the breach and Consumer Warrior Clark Howard says there is both good and bad news to be shared.  Clark says the good news is the number of people impacted by the security breach has gone down. It was originally reported that 50-million people were affected by the breach, but new numbers show the number is now 30-million.  However, the bad news is what the people behind the breach were able to get on the users.  “What the crooks got was much more thorough than estimated before. It’s considered to be the worst breach ever of the Facebook social media platform.” Clark says it possible those behind the breach were able to access users’ contact information, which device they are using Facebook from, their last physical location along with what they are searching on the website.  LISTEN: Clark Howard’s latest podcast When it comes to credit card information and passwords, Clark says that information was not touched.  Clark says one piece of advice he would give is for users to stop using their Facebook account to log into other websites in lieu of creating a separate account for that particular site.
