PASSWORD BREACH: See If You’re Affected
Internet security is a concern for millions of users after several, recent high-profile leaks.
Just this week, a large data breach was reported affecting 2-million Facebook, Google, Twitter and Yahoo users.
A new website has gathered data from several other high-profile leaks and allows users to see if their email address or social media accounts have been affected.
The haveibeenpwned.com website stores the 153-million leaked email addresses from data breaches affecting users of Adobe, Gawker, Yahoo and others.
“This is all about raising awareness of the breadth of breaches,” the website developer said in a blog post.
If you do find your email on the list, experts recommend you change it. It is also recommended you have a different password for each of your accounts.
