Tweaking Your WestonBlock Settings

Posted by on in How To

WestonBlockWe mentioned earlier this year that changes were coming to backend services that powered WestonBlock. We migrated all but a couple folks to the new system now.

That being said, security researchers are showing that the hack is real and that the data is easy enough to decrypt that if you use that same password elsewhere, you’ll want to change it. We recommend using a password manager to generate complicated passwords.
