Warning: In what in being described as the biggest computer hack in history, eBay warns 145 Million users to change their passwords.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2014 ... h/9368969/

They were hacked in February and March, but only made the announcement this morning. If your PayPal password is the same as your eBay password change that too. I'm still having a devil of a time finding out how to change the password, so if anyone knows and could help those of us who are relatively computer illiterate, I'd appreciate it.

An easier way to change your password is on the log in screen. Simply hit the "Forgot Password" link and it'll set you up with a way to change your password without actually having to log into the site.

done and done.

Well, they've also made it easier by asking you to change it on the front page. I updated mine that way and called it a day. Thanks for the information.

Yeah, I finally got mine changed today. They had the wrong email address so that is why I had the problem. All better now. Thanks for the help, guys!
