I got the warning here again- only here- that Chrome detected an app stole passwords. I looked at my account(email) activity and it says a device had signed in a few times. Not mine.I don't have one. So I changed my old password.
I think this was posted before. But it happened a few days ago to me and just today while on youtube I was typing a funny answer- and right before my eyes the sentence I wrote was gone and instead the word "murder" was there.
Yes,I changed my password fast!
Now..whats going on here and only here,that passwords are being lifted? What app? Mine? the boards?
Happened again right now. I tried to screenshot it..but my PC was frozen. It said a data breach on a site or app exposed my passwords...even if they were encrypted.
It only happens here.
Does FF have more cookies than I have whitelisted? Because I did a routine cookie cleanup and for some reason I got the warning and this time, was logged out.
I've changed passwords that matter...but if something malware keeps exposing them.hard to keep up.
Ah..just checked. FF cookies were not whitelisted. I KNOW I had done that before...why I never had to sign in all the time.
Once I ended up with a virus in my computer but fortunately, I solved the problem because the virus wasn't that serious.
Another time, I got a notification that my location was exposed but then I checked it and the location was wrong, phew...
Make sure you guys installed anti-virus and internet security system from a reliable brand.
For mine, I used Norton Security which has all the internet security features.
My laptop was infected with Ransomware once(before I installed the Norton). It's the worst type of attack.
In the end, I reformatted my whole hard disk and reinstall everything again.
Also, make sure you backup your computer every now and then.
Nowadays, cyber-security is one of the biggest issue.
They can hack your Facebook and take over.
Recently, one of my old friend asked for my tel no.
I didn't realise that her account was hacked and taken over.
Later on, she told me that her Facebook account was hacked and taken over.
I told her to make a report and terminate her Facebook account to stop the thief from using her account to get the tel no of her friends.
By the way, to make your passwords more difficult to break in, use a combinations of letters, numbers, different symbols, etc.
You can also use a sentence as your password instead of just word to increase the password strength.
Example of a password: "I bought a Betta fish for $20". "
You can search the internets on how to choose a good password. There are many examples.
I would say I have made the passwords for other sites..but havent changed FF yet.
I have one question. Has FF had anybody else from Hayward ca register and yet,not post a single thing? I would take that as a possible malware installer.
