Twitter has logged out some users after fixing a bug that left some Twitter accounts logged in on some mobile devices after an arbitrary password reset.
“This means that if you proactively changed your password on one device, but still had an open session on another device, that session may not have been closed.” Web sessions were not affected and were closed appropriately,” Twitter explained.
There are some potential privacy risks for users affected by this bug, including access to their accounts by others who were able to access their devices that remained signed in.
Because of this, the company reached out to those who may have been affected and logged them out of their accounts on all active sessions on all devices.
“We directly notified the people we were able to identify who may be affected by this, proactively logged them out of open sessions on various devices and encouraged them to log back in,” the company added. “We realize this may be inconvenient for some, but it was an important step to keep your account secure and protected from potential unwanted access.”
