“The exposed data includes personal information of over 533 million Facebook users from 106 countries, including over 32 million records on users in the US, 11 million on users in the UK, and 6 million on users in India,” according to Insider. “It includes their phone numbers, Facebook IDs, full names, locations, birthdates, bios, and — in some cases — email addresses.”

Having your personal data linked online can be worrisome. This data usually includes things like phone numbers, emails, Facebook IDs, birthdates, etc…  So your first question when hearing about the latest Facebook data breach would be, of course, how to check whether your data has been compromised.

One of the quickest and most straightforward ways to do this is a website called Have I Been Pwned.

When you land on the website, input your email address and the system will scan through all the latest massive data breaches in its repertory. This way you will almost immediately know if you are part of the Facebook breach, but also any other breaches in which your data may have been leaked.

If your data has been compromised, one of the first things you should do is change your passwords on Facebook, as well as setting up two-factor authentification.
