Twitter Password Change Required

Twitter’s Support is advising users to change their passwords after it was revealed that a bug caused “unmasked passwords” to be stored in internal logs.

It was specified in a series of tweets that after an internal investigation, Twitter found no reason to believe any sensitive information ever left their servers or was misused internally; still, the social network advised all users to change their passwords.

Anti-Virus4U.com would like to remind you that similar password-related security oversights tend to happen to a lot of tech companies, but are rarely shared publicly – thus, it is recommended to never reuse passwords, as that can lead to a domino-like effect if one of your accounts gets exposed. Antivirus4u also recommends investing in a password manager and subscribing to our YouTube channel to get latest internet safety news and announcements.
