Researchers: Around 250,000 Users Hacked Weekly

A team of researchers from Google and the University of California recently revealed in a report that around 250,000 user details are compromised every week.

The team also found that email phishing and third-party breaches are the most popular method among hackers for obtaining credentials, with 12 million thefts for the former, and 3.3 billion for the latter.

Because of this issue, experts are advising users not to use the same passwords for all of their accounts. The also recommend using a password manager, as well as an additional layer of security such as face id or biometric data which also offer easier and faster ways of logging in.
