Edmodo Security Incident May 2017 - Reset Passwords
The Department has learned that Edmodo, Inc., a learning platform used by many schools and districts across the State, has suffered a security incident that potentially affects the accounts of Edmodo users. Edmodo’s platform was hacked and the user names, email addresses, and hashed passwords of about millions of account users were acquired by an unknown, unauthorized third party. Edmodo recommends that its users should reset their passwords immediately. Also, Edmodo users should be vigilant about phishing attacks that may result from this incident. Users who use the same password on multiple sites should be encouraged to change them on those sites as well. To reset a password on the Edmodo platform, users should:
- Go to the Edmodo website and log in to your account.
- Click on the “Password Reset” link in the notice at the top of the page.
- Enter their current password, and then create a new password.
Questions about resetting passwords should be directed to the Support Help Center on the Edmodo website.
