A Major Activision hack reportedly has over 500K Accounts Hacked after a data breach on September 20.
All Call of Duty players should be on notice after a major Activison hack left
millions of players in oblivion.
Activision Accounts Hacked?
As of the time of publishing, over 500,000 Activision accounts have reportedly been hacked, with log-ins being leaked publicly. Hackers are then changing the account details, making it so the original owners can’t recover them.
‘oRemyy’ was the first creator to report this breach on Twitter. This was then confirmed by other content creators, like TheGamingRevolution, Prototype Warehouse, and Okami.
“Yeah it’s legit guys. Change your Activision account passwords immediately. Apparently over 500,000 accounts have been breached already and it’s still ongoing,” Okami said on Twitter on September 20.
Activision accounts are apparently being leaked so change your password, although that might not even help because they’re apparently generating 1,000 accounts every 10 minutes,” according to TheGamingRevolution.
Activision accounts connects with all Call of Duty title games, which includes
Warzone, Modern Warfare, not only that they can also be used to access Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
How to Secure your Activision Account?
- Change Password associated with the account
- If you use the same password on other accounts change them also
- Unlink your Battlenet, PSN, Xbox, or other accounts associated with your Activision account
- Remove saved payment details
It is all you can do right now and just keep your eye on the account if anything
major changes. Unfortunately, Activision doesn’t have two-factor authentication
so there is nothing much that you can do.

officials but we will update you as soon as we hear something from them.
