AOL accounts continue to be hacked.
Here is info from AOL: http://mail.security.aol.com/hacked-accounts
First step in securing your account:
- Call America On-Line: 800-827-6364
- Have them reset your account password and de-authorize any currently connected devices.
- After you have reset your password, most importantly, setup Two-Factor authentication with your account. This is critical. Here is information on how it works and how to setup Two-Factor Authentication to prevent such hacks.
2-step verification is an optional security feature to prevent unauthorized account use. How this works? After you enter your password, AOL sends a short, numeric sign-in code to your phone by either Text or Voice Call. You enter the code to complete signing in.
