Have I been Pwned?

If a company you have an account with has suffered a data breach it’s possible your email may have been pwned, which means your email and password for that site’s account has been exposed to cybercriminals. haveibeenpwned.com is a website that checks if an account has been compromised.

Test your work and personal email accounts to see if it has been involved in a breach. This is especially important if users share passwords across multiple accounts (a big no-no!). We encourage users to use separate passwords (and perhaps research different password managers that may work for them).

If you find out you have been pwned, please change your passwords (especially for those affected accounts). It may also be a good time to set up some multi-factor authentication on those accounts as well, if the vendor supports it.
