Check if your password has been ‘pwned’ 

We all live in very real fear of our private data being hacked. But fear not, there is now an online resource where you can check to see if any of your email accounts have been ‘breached’ by a cyber attack.

Just enter your email address/es into the https://haveIbeenpwned.com site and if you find any of your accounts have been part of any of the mass leakages, start thinking about changing your critical passwords! You can also sign up to email notification alerts that will tell you if and when your email address does get hacked.
