Facebook Security Breach Take Action Now

Facebook Security Breach

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. The feature allows users to see their Facebook page the way someone else would. As a result of the attack, approximately 50 million users may be affected.

Facebook has fixed the issue but has not confirmed if user information was accessed.

Therefore, LARGO has taken steps to protect access to our client’s accounts by changing our login passwords.

Additionally, LARGO recommends that the owner of your business page change the login password to prevent unauthorized access. Changing your login will not impact LARGO’s ability to post on your behalf but will safeguard access.

When changing your password, LARGO recommends at a minimum that you use 16 characters. For example, use a combination of letters (upper and lower case), numbers and special characters. Above all, change your password on all accounts If you use the same password for multiple accounts.
