I’m probably never going to buy another Dell. So, why can’t I delete me account?


#3

Forced reset of customer passwords…

vs.

Ignoring and pretending the breach never happened.

I would go with the former.


#4

I seem to remember “protect customers from cyberattack” being a choice at one point and time.

A win for those hackers with the presence of mind to first alter the (password recovery) email address then.

Jolly good.


#6

Of course the forced reset via email link is not working now.
