We know many people come to the library for tech help, so we thought we'd share this important tech tip as it affects a lot of people.
If you haven't heard on the news, Yahoo! had a major data breach. Basically, hackers obtained information for usernames, email addresses and passwords for 500 million users.
What does this mean to me?:
According to news outlets, it doesn't look like anything super major. However, it's a good idea to logon to your Yahoo! account and change your password; even if you don't use your Yahoo! account anymore.
Furthermore, if you used the same password for your Yahoo! account for different accounts, you should probably change those too. Tech experts recommend changing your password to minimize risk from hackers. Need help changing your passwords? We're always happy to help at Patterson Library.
