Wondering why you had to log back into Facebook recently? You were not alone.

Officials at Facebook announced last week the online social media service had suffered a data breach affecting nearly 50 million accounts. As a result, those accounts were reset to a logged out state. Those users discovered they needed to provide their ID and passwords (ie log back in) to access their Facebook accounts. Another 40 million accounts were reset as a “precautionary step.”

Users accessing their Facebook accounts on multiple devices and apps were required to log back in on each one.

Officials said there is no need for anyone to change their passwords as a result of the breach.

Officials announced on Friday that a combination of 3 bugs in their system created a vulnerability that had been exploited and that vulnerability had since been fixed. As a precaution, the service feature with the bugs, “View as …,” has been disabled.
