Do you know if your account is out on the internet?

Everyone has so many accounts online these days. You pretty much need them from everything from email to downloading an ebook to buying products. What happens when that website gets breached by a hacker and gets your login details? Well alot of the time they keep it for themselves or sell off the email addressess to someone that does spam, the credit card information to the dark web and your personal info off the someone else.

 

“Credit monitoring” seems to be the in thing at the moment.

So your name, address, date of birth, email,
phone number, password gets stolen and you get a free year of “credit monitoring”Seems…… just? And that is if the company discloses they have been breached or the hacker discloses it for them.

 

 

The http://www.ibeenpwned.com website takes public released info and puts it into a nice database so you can check for your email address again the database. Also you can get notified if you end up in this list.
