It is believed that passwords from email account providers such as Gmail and Yahoo and social network sites such as Facebook, Pinterest and Tumblr could be stolen easily. Now that the Heartbleed vulnerability is known, most companies have taken steps to secure password information. Companies have added more steps to the sign-in process and other precautions to ensure the information stays secure.
