Hi Guys,

I hope you are well.

Facebook Marketplace – 77,267 breached accounts
In February 2024, 200k Facebook Marketplace records allegedly obtained from a Meta contractor in October 2023 were posted to a popular hacking forum. The data contained 77k unique email addresses alongside names, phone numbers, Facebook profile IDs and geographic locations. The data also contained bcrypt password hashes, although there is no indication these belong to the corresponding Facebook accounts.

If you have an account with Facebook, please do the following:

* Change your password and make sure your new password is at least ten characters long and contains an upper case, lower case, number, and symbol. You can even use a modified phrase or a line from a song if that helps you remember
* Ensure you do not use the same password twice, leaving you vulnerable to credential stuffing.
* Find a good password manager tool to help you remember your passwords. Some of our users say that 1Password is a good tool.
* Check out Incognito’s Email Hack Check tool. All you have to do is enter your email address, and we will tell you instantly if it has been involved in one of the many data breaches that happen every day.

Please let me know if you need any help with this.

All the best,
Max Roberts,
