Twitter is asking its users, all 330 million of them worldwide, to change their passwords.

The social media giant says it recently discovered a bug that saved user passwords on an internal log without proper encryption.

Twitter says that issue has been fixed, and there’s no evidence the passwords were leaked or misused.

Nevertheless, the company is urging users to update their passwords as a precaution.
