For all the sneakerheads and hypebeasts out there, if you received an email from StockX asking you to reset your password, then it was probably authentic. The online marketplace told Engadget in a statement that it was "recently alerted to suspicious activity involving our platform."
Exactly what that included is unspecified, but "out of an abundance of caution," it's updated security and is asking users to reset their passwords while an investigation continues. As usual, we'd hope you aren't sharing passwords across different services, and if you haven't already set up a password manager or started using two-factor authentication wherever available, this is a great time to start.
And here it is, this is what StockX tells me: looks like those reset password emails are being sent out of "caution" after being "alerted to suspicious acitivity." Still not sure why the company wouldn't make that clear in the emails it is sending customers. @stockx https://t.co/QBIigWsHWl pic.twitter.com/VPGDr4id0T— Edgar Alvarez (@abcdedgar) August 2, 2019
