Facebook hacked: how to know if your data leaked in the attack

Facebook has provided a support page that allows you to find out if your profile has been affected by the recent data leakage that affected about 30 million users. The social network informs you that you are still investigating the case, but it is already possible to verify that your account has been reached and, if so, to know what information has been exposed.

After the vulnerability was discovered, as a security measure, Facebook ended the session for millions of people, who had to log in again on their cell phone, PC and even third-party applications - such as Tinder. However, not all users who were logged off have been affected. Check out, in the following tutorial, how to do the verification on your profile.
