What we know about the Facebook security breach as of Saturday, September 28, 2018.
On Friday, September 28, 2018, Facebook announced that attackers exploited the “View As” feature that allows users to see their Facebook page the way someone else would. The attack affected the personal information of approximately 50 million users.
Facebook has fixed the issue but has not confirmed if the affected accounts were misused or if user information was accessed.
LARGO has taken steps to protect access to our clients by changing our login password which allows us to manage your Facebook Business Page through our account.
LARGO recommends that the owner of your business page change the login password to prevent any unauthorized access. Changing your login will not impact LARGO’s ability to post on your behalf but will safeguard access in case your account was breached.
When changing your password, LARGO recommends at a minimum that you use 16 characters that include a combination of letters (upper and lower case), numbers and characters. If you use the same password for multiple accounts, you should also change those passwords.
