Check if your account has been pwned

Posted on Tuesday, October 9, 2018

You take all measures to protect your data against cyber attacks. But have you ever checked if your email account has been compromised or pwned in a data breach?

A simple check will let you know if your personal information was exposed and what type of data was leaked online. You can also see detailed information about the leaked data (when, where, and how). Most of the data leaks do contain personal information, but this does not necessarily mean that they contain the password associated to your email address.

If you don’t remember to regularly check if you email accounts have been compromised, you can sign up to be notified of any future breaches involving your email address. Nowadays, more tools are being released, such as Firefox Monitor, that can help you stay safe from hackers.

Stay vigilant. Remember to create strong passwords for all your accounts and to change them regularly. Check out our tips on how to create strong passwords!
