There are hundreds of millions of hacked account details in circulation on the internet. Partly as the result of high-profile attacks such as the ones against Sony Pictures and Ashley Madison. But these are just the tip of a large iceberg, and the list of stolen credentials is growing by the day.
What about yours? Has anyone stolen a password that corresponds to your email address? Is there a way to check?
Thankfully, there is. A web site called Breach Alarm automatically scans the web for hacked passwords and the email addresses that go with them. So you can get some instant peace of mind just by going to www.breachalarm.com and entering your email address. The system will scan its databases and, if any record of your details is found, you'll be alerted so that you can change your password.
