Yahoo just confirmed that all 3 billion of its accounts were hacked in 2013, more than tripling the original estimate. This is a stunning display of ineptitude from a company whom so many trusted. If you had a Yahoo account in 2013 you should take the following steps immediately to ensure your privacy.

1. Change your Yahoo password. Make sure they no longer have access to your account. If you can go without your Yahoo account we suggest delete it completely. 

2. Change your passwords on all other accounts. If you are like most people then you use a couple passwords for all your accounts. This means that if someone received your Yahoo password they could access other sites like banking and social media, causing real damage.

3. Keep an eye out on your account. Check your Yahoo account and make sure it is how you left it, checking sent and deleted folders for email that you did not send or create.

4. Get a Private Email Address. offers you a private email alternative to secure you from these hacks.
