    One of the most popular Android streaming apps “Plex”. The app encourages its users to reset their account passwords immediately. In an email to users, the company confirmed some key information about the leak.

    The email for the Plex says ‘We immediately began an investigation and it does appear that a third party was able to access a limited subset of data that includes emails, usernames, and encrypted passwords. Even though all account passwords that could have been accessed were hashed and secured in accordance with best practices, out of an abundance of caution we are requiring all Plex accounts to have their password reset‘.

    Now, the company wanted its all users to reset their Plex accounts passwords as soon as possible, not all users are affected by this data breach. If you want to reset your Plex account password then you can do that here or you can manually change it from the app itself, as usual, the application recommends turning on two-factor authentication.

    Here’s how to change your Plex account password:

    • Open a Private/Incognito browser window.
    • Go to the password reset request page (https://app.plex.tv/auth#?resetPassword). (Or if you’re concerned about phishing, go to the main Plex website in the Private/Incognito browser window, choose to Sign In, then click the Forgot? link on the sign-in form.)
    • Enter the email address of your Plex account and submit the form.
    • Assuming a Plex account exists linked to that email address, we’ll send the password reset email. (This should normally arrive within a minute or two, but could be delayed in some cases either on our side or being delivered on your mail processor’s side.)

    • Take the link from the password reset email and paste it into the Private/Incognito browser window.
    • Choose a new, strong, unique password. (Do not use the same password as any other website or service.)
