Urgent Alert: Business Users Must Change ChatGPT Passwords Immediately

ChatGPT Passwords: Over 100,000 Stolen Account Credentials Sold on Dark Web Marketplaces

In an alarming development, it has come to light that over 100,000 ChatGPT account credentials have been stolen and are now being sold on dark web marketplaces.

This poses a severe security threat to business users who utilize ChatGPT for their day-to-day operations.

Hackers may leverage these stolen credentials to send malicious messages, extract confidential information, or impersonate legitimate users, potentially causing financial loss, reputational damage, and legal consequences.

Business users should change their ChatGPT passwords immediately

The importance of strong, unique passwords: To mitigate the risks associated with the stolen ChatGPT account credentials, business users should change their passwords immediately.

It is crucial to create strong, unique passwords that are not easily guessable. A strong password typically consists of a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers, and special characters.

Using a password manager can help generate and securely store complex passwords for all accounts. We recommend Dashlane password manager. 

Important Notice: Temporary Pause on 2FA/MFA Enrolments for ChatGPT Accounts

Effective immediately, starting from Monday, June 12, 2023, ChatGPT has temporarily paused new enrolments for two-factor authentication (2FA) or multi-factor authentication (MFA) for all user accounts.

If you have already activated 2FA on your ChatGPT account, You are already benefiting from an additional layer of security. 

However, if you have not yet enabled 2FA on your account, we advise against relying solely on ChatGPT’s password authentication system at this time.

Instead, you may want to consider using an alternative AI like Microsoft CoPilot Pro
