A number of Fantasy Premier League managers have had their squad compromised in some way during the last week. We are sorry their season has been impacted in this way and the frustration it has caused.
There is no indication or evidence of a security breach on the accounts of these FPL managers via fantasy.premierleague.com or the Premier League mobile app.
Unfortunately, those FPL managers affected had used the same email address and password combination on other third-party websites or applications that have been involved in security breaches in the past. These breaches are not limited to websites or applications that provide FPL-related information or services.
We would like to take this opportunity to remind all FPL managers that using the same email address and password combination on other sites puts the security of your FPL team at risk.
We recommend that FPL managers practise good password hygiene by creating a unique password for FPL that is not used elsewhere, using a strong password that would be hard to guess, and updating the password regularly.
Meanwhile, we will continue to take further steps to protect account security and we are committed to the introduction of two-factor authentication for the 2022/23 season.
