It may be time to change your password on LinkedIn.

That’s because the company says its data breach four years ago was much worse than it originally thought.

LinkedIn initially reported the data breach in 2012 affected 7 million people. But now the company says at least 167 million accounts are for sale online including 117 million passwords.

The jobs site says it is working on notifying all affected users. Experts say to update your password on the site if you haven’t changed it in the last four years.
