Hackers Accessed Personal Data of 30 Million Facebook Users

According to Facebook, Hackers Accessed Personal Data of 30 Million Facebook Users. The company claimed that it is the biggest security breach in its history. The breach came about after hackers stole “access tokens”, which allow users to browse Facebook without having to log in multiple times.

Hackers Accessed Personal Data of 30 Million Facebook Users

According to Facebook, the hackers accessed the following information from the 14 million users:

“Username, gender, locale/language, relationship status, religion, hometown, self-reported current city, birthdate, device types used to access Facebook, education, work, the last 10 places they checked into or tagged in, website, people or Pages they follow, and the 15 most recent searches.”

Facebook has also introduced a way to check whether your account has faced a security breach or not. If you want to check the status of your account click on this link. Than Scroll down to a light blue box. The box will say “Is my Facebook account impacted by this security issue?” If your account was not compromised, you will see a message that reads

“Our investigation is still ongoing, but based on what we’ve learned so far, the attackers did not gain access to information associated with your Facebook account..”

Back on September 28th, Facebook also announced that it has faced data breach of 50 million accounts. The breach allowed hackers to steal Facebook access tokens. It will allow these attackers to access members’ accounts. The company reset the tokens for the 50 million and an additional 40 million to play it safe.
