Amazon resets passwords of certain customers in danger of having the information swiped
Amazon also made it clear that it didn't believe that the passwords were obtained by a third party. The force-reset was done out of an "abundance of caution," the online retailer said. Last week, the company launched two-factor authentication for its U.S. customers visiting the Amazon.com website. But this does not cover the mobile version of the site. You can request that your mobile browser open the desktop version of Amazon.com if you want to use the two-factor authentication to sign-in.
While Amazon has not issued a statement to the media regarding the issue, you might want to take a few minutes to change your password just in case. The exact number of customers affected by the issue is unknown.
