You can know if your Facebook account was affected in the last hack

Facebook confirms that less than 30 million accounts were affected in the last hack. According to the report shared by the Facebook team that the hacker accessed around 29 million profiles with their respective data.

They have shared a report that how it happened. They have explained how hackers were able to obtain access tokens from compromised accounts, following an automated technique, which started with a small group as a base, to stagger the attack using contacts.

According to report, this attack did not include Messenger, Messenger Kids, Instagram, Oculus, Workplace, Page, Third-party applications or accounts of advertisers or developers, although we continue investigating how it may have impacted the Groups.
