Facebook users should better change their passwords

After the recent data breach disclosure by Facebook, the social media giant is urging its users to change the passwords of their respective accounts in order to avoid any kind of trouble or embarrassment in near future.

It is believed that those users who are using the same facebook credentials on the photo app named Instagram may get affected by the security breach which has hit over 50 million users last week.

However, Facebook has made it official yesterday that the hackers who stole the critical info haven’t used the data yet to access other sites that use Facebook credentials, but if they choose to do it later, then Tinder, Spotify, and Instagram accounts could be exposed.

This means, all those online service providers who allow users to use their Facebook credentials should keep a check on the malicious activity related to those accounts in the near future. Otherwise, it could spell trouble to the user and can also tarnish the image of the social media giant.

Guy Rosen, the Vice President of Facebook stated the above said facts to the world yesterday and said that his company has taken all necessary security measures to avoid such data breach scandals in the future.

As the Facebook-Cambridge Analytica Data Scandal was exposed early this year, users of the Mark Zuckerberg led company became highly concerned about their data privacy on the said platform.

Now, after the latest data breach disclosure, there is a high possibility that most of the users could choose to deactivate their accounts in near time. For this reason, the shares of Facebook closed down by 1.9% at $159.32 on Tuesday and the fear that the decline might protrude further is gripping among the shareholders day by day.
