Compromised passwords

In this article: What is it and how to check your passwords in SafeInCloud                     

1. What is a compromised password

Compromised passwords are passwords previously exposed in data breaches. This exposure makes them unsuitable for ongoing use as they're at much greater risk of being used to take over other accounts. 

SafeInCloud uses the well-known and trusted website to check if any of your passwords have been compromised. This site has a database of over half a billion passwords that have been leaked. SafeInCloud does not send any of your passwords or their hashes to this site. Instead, a k-anonymity approach is used to ensure that your passwords are secure during verification.
