I've heard of Facebook & Twitter accounts getting hacked but until yesterday, I never would have thought someone would hack a Pinterest account. I guess I'm naive. Pinterest just didn't seem like something someone would hack. Well, I was wrong. Totally & completely wrong.
My Pinterest was hacked yesterday by someone from France who not only changed my name and location, they deleted all my blog URL's and posted URL's of their own. You have to ask yourself why someone would do that? At least that is what I'm asking myself.
If you've seen spam from Pinterest on your Facebook & Twitter, pins or boards popping up that you know you didn't make or even possibly have pins reappearing that you know you've deleted, you've probably been hacked.
The first thing you should do is reset your password. Hit those hackers where it hurts and lock them out!
