You Should Probably Change Your Dropbox Password Right Now

by Nicole Nguyen on August 31, 2016

Over 60 million account details were stolen in 2012, and the list has been leaked.

Hackers obtained around 68 million email accounts at that time – and it was recently revealed that passwords were also at risk. The database was sent to Motherboard by the breach notification service Leakbase.

In a blog post, Dropbox wrote, “If you signed up for Dropbox prior to mid-2012 and haven’t changed your password since, you’ll be prompted to update it the next time you sign in.”

The forced reset is a “purely preventative measure,” according to the company.
