Yeah, my old password was like pwned 9 times or smth, which sucks.

Try to check on this site once in a while, in case another breach happens or smth.

Just yesterday, there were another 26 mil passwords leaked in a completely different leak. Have I Been Pwned? updated their database regarding leaked e-mails and passwords. I'd recommend checking your info to see it was leaked.

Always remember, there are no hot singles in your area and a password like "0+0 abcd1234 1+1" is a thousand times safer than "donaldtrumpisthicc2015."

Jesus fucking christ. I'm pretty sure most of my old passwords will be on that list.

If you want to check if your password, or email has been breached or something, then you should probably use haveibeenpwned, that's how I knew my old passwords were breached, anyways.
I also recommend subscribing to Bitdefender Security, as they constantly monitor if your passwords have been revealed.

I got pwned in 3 spaces, but luckily they're sites I don't even visit anymore LMAO.
If you use the same password that has been pwned on a different site, and with the same email, then you should preferably change it.

You shouldn't just change the password for the site that you got pwned at. I believe there are shit like checkers and stuff, where people use a large list of passwords that has been breached, put it on a program, and then that program will use it on a bunch of different sites, or smth.

I'm not really sure if its the same, but back in the day, when I was a little prick I used to go to sites where you get a bunch of passwords and usernames, put it in a program, and you can check what those users with leaked password has in game. Granted, that was for a game, so I'm not sure if that's really the same here.

Regardless, better safe than sorry.

My password has a combination of 4 languages+numbers and 2-step verification, so nothing to worry about... I think
Oh, thats good!

Nah, I've been using different passwords for every single site since like, 2018 now.

The emails that were breached, did you change the password after it was breached in whatever year it was?

For example, if it was breached in 2016, did you ever change it in 2017 or after? If so, then there's nothing to worry about.

I mean, if all of your passwords are safe, then there's nothing to worry about I suppose. You still use those emails, right? And have you used the passwords for those emails, and did it say they were not breached?

Yes, I used all the passwords that are safe in emails that were breached. I think that means I'm good right?

Jesus, I'll need to change almost everything. Thanks so very much for the heads-up!

A general tip for you guys, it is a good idea of, instead of attempting to make a complex password, to make a long sentence. It is much harder for a hacker with a brute force method to break something like todayiwenttotheparkandsawacutedog than a14,[email protected]

There are other methods of hacking which that may not help, and I think that making a password both complex and long is the ideal, but usually, a very long password really helps against brute force.

I actually found a video mentioned some things about it. That being said, we should always remain cautious about our passwords, but it seems likely that "8.4 passwords being leaked by this one hacker" is likely a hyperbole. It's mostly a bunch of random words as well as passwords that have been leaked for ages. Also, while I'm not sure if the site is considered something Fandom approves, "haveIbeenpwned.com" was something a college classmate recommended me to use in case any personal passwords may have been leaked.

Thanks, at least this makes the situation less worse, but still is apropriate to change the password just to avoid unecessary problems, yeah

You can pay for 1password, and use it to store your various passwords. It seems like the safest available alternative.

Just make sure to save the master password for the service somewhere very safe.
