If you’re a Kickstarter user, it’s time to change your account’s password. The crowd-funding platform has had a security breach and recommends changing your password on the site, as well as at any other websites where you used the same password.
The good news is that no credit card data was accessed and actual passwords weren’t revealed. The bad news is that usernames, email addresses, mailing addresses, phone numbers, and encrypted passwords were accessed—the last of which could be cracked with enough computing power.
Head to Kickstarter, log into your account and there’ll be a banner on top to change the password. And since it’s recommended to change that password everywhere, check out our guide to auditing and updating your passwords with LastPass for our recommendations on how to proceed.
