Knowing if your password is safe is difficult.

So the question I ask you is, do you know how many of your passwords have been breached? There is a high likelihood that a number of your passwords have been and you don’t even know it.

Determining whether or not your password is good is through a scale of weak to strong, generated by looking at how many symbols, capital letters, numbers, etc. that you use. We never know how accurate that scale is or if it is easy for someone to compromise your accounts.

Thousands of passwords are being hacked every day so what can you do to make sure one of your passwords isn’t one of them?

Here are 3 different ways for you to see which of your passwords have been compromised and how you can make your passwords safer.

Have I been pwned?

Have I been pwned is a free resource, accessible to anyone to assess if their online accounts have been compromised or “pwned”.

This resource can assess whether or not a person is at risk for their personal details being accessed through a data breach. A data breach is an unintentional exposure of your details through a compromised website or application.

Have I been pwned was created to be a benefit to the community, to keep everyone’s personal and private information safe. Being notified when there is pwnage and when your account is compromised is easy. All the information they need is your email and they will notify you with what breaches you have been pwned in.

You can stay notified and take whatever actions are needed to keep your details safe and secure.
