If you’re a Slack user, you may have recently received an email from the company informing you that your password has been reset.
According to The Verge, Slack has reset the passwords of around 65,000 users after being contacted about a list of allegedly compromised Slack account passwords.
Slack believes these passwords could have been acquired during a 2015 data breach the company experienced. However, Slack has stated that “the approximately 99% who joined Slack after March 2015” have nothing to worry about.
Slack has already reset the passwords of those who may be at risk, instructing them to create new passwords for their accounts.
If you’ve received an email from Slack, consider using Myki to generate a strong new password for your account, and make sure to do the same for any other accounts you’ve reused your old Slack password on.
Myki can also be used to manage two-factor authentification, making it the perfect tool to keep your Slack account, or any other accounts, hack-proof.
