Here’s how to identify if your Facebook account was among the 29 million hacked

Twenty-nine million Facebook users had their accounts accessed by hackers. Facebook claims it has a decent grasp on one important detail: Whether or not you are one of the victims.

Here’s how to check: First, while logged into your Facebook account, head on over to the Help Center and scroll to the bottom of the page. You’ll see one of several detailed notices.

For starters, if you’re likely in the clear you’ll find this message: “Based on what we’ve learned so far, your Facebook account has not been impacted by this security incident. If we find more Facebook accounts were impacted, we will reset their access tokens and notify those accounts.”

Now, if your account was accessed, you’ll see a very different warning. Specifically, Facebook will tell you what info of yours it believes was scraped.

while Facebook’s alert says that no “payment card or credit card information” was stolen, Facebook product executive Guy Rosen did say that hackers would have been able to see the last four digits of a user’s credit card through this hack.

Facebook also says it will reach out to people directly if their data was stolen.
