Facebook has set up a page that will tell you if your account was one of 29 million affected by a security breach the social media company disclosed two weeks ago.

To check if your account was affected, make sure you’re logged into Facebook and go to the security notice page. It’s https://www.facebook.com/help/securitynotice?ref=sec

The page explains the breach and how Facebook addressed it. If your account was not compromised, you will see the following message:

“Based on what we’ve learned so far, your Facebook account has not been impacted by this security incident. If we find more Facebook accounts were impacted, we will reset their access tokens and notify those accounts.”

If your account was affected, Facebook will tell you what private information was accessed.

If you’re having trouble logging back into your account, Facebook has a page that tells you what to do.
