Udemy Account Hacked - be careful. Oh and no 2FA - WHAT!!!!

Instructors beware, 

 

I tried to log in to my Udemy account today, only to find out I was unable to log in. I kept using the password reset option, but would not receive the reset email from Udemy. Finally, I gave up on trying. Fast forward 8 hours later I contacted Udemy chat support to find out what's going on and realized someone got access to my Udemy account. Not only did they change the login email, but also changed the payout settings PayPal email. 

 

The most Effed up part about all of this, for the millions of $$$$$$ udemy makes, they DO NOT HAVE 2FA. 

 

These are the emails associated with Hackers. Instructors - Beware!

Udemy really needs to offer 2FA for instructors. Seems like more and more criminals are smelling money here.

 

Meanwhile, everyone needs to make sure you have a strong password that's not used anyplace else on your Udemy account.

Pull up a seat and chat with your fellow instructors. This is a great place to get to know each other, swap stories, and just relax.
