." Facebook has requested users input their phone numbers since 2011, citing security reasons. It allows for two-factor authentication, which sends a message to the user's mobile phone whenever someone logs into their account. On Twitter, a Facebook spokesperson said: "This is old data that was previously reported on in 2019. [Facebook] found and fixed this issue in August 2019."
If you've found yourself victim to this recent Facebook breach, or any other, it's recommended that you change your passwords to the affected account and any other account associated with the email address. Additionally, a password manager service can help make and secure particularly strong and unique passwords that are unlikely to be guessed.
