I have been notified that my myheritage account and hashed password were a part of the myheritage data breach. The actual consequences seem very minor, since the stolen password was hashed and no personal or financial data was breached. Also, I don't keep any genealogical data at myheritage. I only use myheritage for the WebHints. Nevertheless, I did change my myheritage password, just in case. Also, myheritage has introduced two factor sign-in authentication, and I am considering turning it on.
That raises two questions about RM:
- Is it possible to tell RM about my new myheritage password without doing a CTL-U? I don't think so, but I could be wrong. I really dislike the CTL-U mechanism because it's not selective. It resets all RM options and there is no way to reset just one RM option, such as the saved myheritage password. Hence, I find CTL-U to be very disruptive.
- If I turn on myheritage's two factor sign-in authentication, will I still be able to to use myheritage's WebHints?
