If you own a Nintendo console and have a Nintendo Account, then you may want to double check your security settings. Over the weekend, reports of third-party log-ins began creeping in, indicating that some kind of breach has taken place.
Nintendo has not confirmed a security breach at this time, but users on Twitter are confirming account log-ins from Russia, India, Thailand, Germany and other parts of the world.
I'd also recommend everyone check their Nintendo account login history to check for suspicious activity. You can do that here: https://t.co/Qg3ZVfXnCz

This comes at an odd time as earlier this month, Nintendo did tweet out letting users they could now activate two-factor authentication. Given the reports going around at the moment, we would suggest that you do get that sorted.
Nintendo has yet to comment on the reports of a security issue but we should hear more within the next few days.

KitGuru Says: So far, my Nintendo account has been unaffected but this did push me to go and activate 2FA. Have any of you seen any odd activity on your Nintendo account recently?
