Dailymotion accounts security update

It has come to our attention that a potential security risk, coming from outside Dailymotion may have comprised the passwords for a certain number of accounts. The hack appears to be limited, and no personal data has been comprised. Your account security is extremely important to us, and to be on the safe side, we are strongly advising all of our partners and users to reset their passwords. When defining a new password we recommend that your new password contains eight or more characters, is not obvious (EG: password1234), and not to use the same password on multiple sites.

To reset your password, please complete the following steps:

Go to the Dailymotion website

-Log in to your account

-Use the dropdown menu in the top right-hand corner to access your settings

-Select Account Settings

-Enter a new password and save the changes

To Dailymotion Partners:

If you use Dailymotion in your app or services though the oAuth2 grant_type=password (LINK : https://developer.dailymotion.com/api#oauth-client-native-application) you should update your app or services with your new password.

We would like to remind that the best way to authenticate your app or services is to use refresh-token method (https://developer.dailymotion.com/api#using-refresh-tokens). If you use this authentication method you do not have to update your app or services after the password change.
