After ‘suspicious activity’ alert, StockX forced password resets. If you received an email from StockX asking you to reset your password, then it was probably authentic for all the sneakerheads and hype beasts out there. In a statement that Engadget was “recently alerted to suspicious activity involving our platform,” the online marketplace stated.
After ‘suspicious activity’ alert, StockX forced password resets
Exactly what’s included is unspecified, but “out of caution,” it’s updated security and asks users to reset their passwords while an investigation continues. We would hope you don’t share passwords across different services as usual, and if you haven’t already set up a password manager or started using two-factor authentication wherever available, this is a great time to start.
And here it is, this is what StockX tells me: looks like those reset password emails are being sent out of “caution” after being “alerted to suspicious acitivity.” Still not sure why the company wouldn’t make that clear in the emails it is sending customers. @stockx https://t.co/QBIigWsHWl pic.twitter.com/VPGDr4id0T
