Since 29 million Facebook users have been affected by this, the company has provided tools to know whether anybody has seen this data or not.

First open the Facebook Help Center  https://www.facebook.com/help/securitynotice. Here you will see a notice that says that your account is affected by this hacking or not. If it is that kind of information that was included in it then it will be told.

In 29 million it is worth noting that the name of 15 million users, email addresses and phone number had leaked. However, this information also depends on what kind of information the users have kept. Information of 14 million users such as gender, religion, location, device information had leaked. Data of the remaining users had leaked but not used also Hackers have not posted anything from users’ profiles.

If your data is influenced by this hacking of Facebook, then the company says that you do not have to do anything to secure it now. The passwords have not been stolen, so there is no need to change them. Hackers had access token which has already been reset by the company, due to this many users’ accounts were logged out automatically.
