A great way to know if a password has been compromised is to check if your email has been involved in data breach. Hackers break into websites and steal the user names — often your email address — and passwords you use to log onto those websites.
Luckily… ehrm, well maybe not luck… many of those lists of user names and passwords go up for sale on the dark web and security experts can learn what email addresses have been compromised. Shameless self promotion here — a tool to check if your email address has been involved in such a data breach is right here on this page.
Scroll down the page until you find the password checker that looks like the image to the right. You may be surprised at what you learn! Talk to us about knowing right away if you’ve been a victim of a data breach.
