The password has appeared in a data leak

Post by Florian320 »

Hello fellow members,

I just wanted to share that my Safari browser today told me my password has appeared in a data leak and recommended to change it.
It is a feature of MAC OS and my password for this forum was very simple. But I thought maybe some of you used the identical password you use here somewhere else and may have the same issue.
Stay safe!

There has been a LOT of hacks and most of these forums would be sensitive to intrusion.

Never use a critical password on a forum: use a garbage password that isn't used on your sensitive info or sensitive sites.
