    Don't forget to enable 2FA.

    Much of the information is old and potentially out-of-date, Google representatives told Russian media, so the so-called “leak” may be more accurately described as a collection of phished and hacked credentials collected over years. In fact, many of the accounts have long been suspended or are matched with very old passwords.

    And change passwords regularly. And check the source of such 'news' ... Scaremongering is also widely abused to drive people to change their passwords. Together with some phishing emails this could bring some really valid passwords, not some outdated stuffs.

    Google's servers weren't hacked in any way. Idiotic people go to links that say, "Hey! Enter your Gmail password here!" And then they enter their password. Entirely different. Blame your peers.
    Fearmongering.

    Cogito_Ergo_Sum
