Login with Nintendo Network ID disabled after hacking 160,000 accounts NOW

Nintendo has disabled logging in with a Nintendo Network ID (NNID) after 160,000 accounts were hacked in April, the company announced on its website. Users can still log in with an email address, username or via their Facebook, Twitter, Google or Apple account.

The company asks users who are logged in with their NNID to choose an alternative method. In addition, users are asked not to reuse passwords, even if the Nintendo Account and NNID have the same password.

Hackers may have had access to email addresses, birth dates, and location from NNIDs. If the hacker also managed to access the Nintendo Account, the user’s name and gender may also have been leaked.

Nintendo will reset the passwords of the potentially hacked NNID and Nintendo accounts. It is unclear what causes the hack wave. A company spokesperson left earlier this week Eurogamer know that the company is investigating the matter.
