If you’re wondering if the e-mail asking you to change your password on your Twitter account is legit or a phishing scam look no further the e-mail is legit. Twitter sent password reset email to many accounts, thanks to a security breach. Sites like Mashable, Techcrunch and many others got there Twitter accounts hacked and a tweet with a link was sent out saying:
“Make $250 A Day From Home”
Twitter has sent out e-mails to user that they believe have compromised accounts. The e-mail reads
“We’re committed to keeping Twitter a safe and open community. As part of that commitment, in instances when we believe an account may have been compromised, we reset the password and send an email letting the account owner know this has happened along with information about creating a new password. This is a routine part of our processes to protect our users.
In this case, we unintentionally reset passwords of a larger number of accounts, beyond those that we believed to have been compromised. We apologize for any inconvenience or confusion this may have caused.”
If you received this message or when you login to twitter they asked you to change your password this is legitimate. Make sure you do this to keep your account safe.
