How to tell if your password has been stolen

Post by koimaster » February 10th 2021, 11:47am

Coming up with a strong, unique password and storing it in a password manager or browser isn’t good enough. You need to know if and when your password was stolen in a password breach, so you can act quickly enough to change that password before your personal information is potentially compromised. Here’s how.

It’s been some time since the massive Collections breaches of 2019 leaked literally billions of email addresses and passwords to the web, putting the security of those accounts at risk. The problem users faced at the time was a limited number of ways to tell if they were actually at risk. Now, there are many password monitoring services that will reveal if your password has been stolen. Many are designed to let you quickly take action and change them.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
