Bad News If You Use Canva

Last Update: May 25, 2019

Hey guys,

Just wanted to give you a heads up about Canva being hacked. This article from zdnet.com just came across my newsfeed on Facebook.

139 million users have had their accounts hacked. This information has been verified. Information that has been stolen include usernames, real names, passwords, email addresses, and city and country information.

For those of you that don't know what Canva is, it's a free tool that is highly recommended here at Wealthy Affiliate. It's a great tool that is simple to use to create images for your website that can easily be uploaded.

As a safety precaution, I advise anyone who has a Canva account to immediately change their password. If your information has been stolen, there's nothing you can do about it now. If you have a paid account, it's best to double check that your financial information has not been compromised.

Be safe out there, kids!

Alanna

Thanks Alanna. I’ve had an email from Canva advising me to change my password. I don’t have a paid account but have made the change anyway.
