Twitter is locking down the accounts of users whose passwords have been changed in the past 30 days following a massive hacking attack targeting a slew of high-profile figures including Barack Obama and billionaire Elon Musk.

The company said it had found “no evidence” that hackers accessed passwords during the attack, and that it’s not necessary for users to reset their passwords, in a message posted by Twitter Support on Thursday.

The decision to lock all accounts on which there had been an attempt to change the password in the past month was made “out of an abundance of caution” to protect the security of users, the company said.
