While starting my day the other morning, I heard a blurb on the news. Pandora’s user names and passwords had been compromised. While it did cause me pause, the chaos of the morning chased away my concern.
Today, I received this email:
Dear Pandora listener:
As a precaution, we want to make you aware of a situation that could possibly affect your Pandora account. First off, there is no evidence that your Pandora account has been compromised or tampered with in any way. However, usernames and passwords that were breached from a service other than Pandora a few years ago were posted on the web recently. In order to protect Pandora Listeners, our security teams have analyzed the date and found that your Pandora username was included in the list.
If you share passwords across services and haven’t updated them recently, and you haven’t already reset your Pandora password, you should do so now. Below is a link with which you can request a password reset on Pandora.
We apologize for any inconvenience and are happy to answer any questions you have.
Listen on, Pandora
