About 2 billion user accounts were compromised during the last few years. Some of the account information is still available. The accessible user information through a record ranges from e-mail address to credit card information coupled passwords. Some are perceived as protected temporarily and some, mare badly encrypted.
There are about three perfect websites I’d suggest to you that will help you discover if your personal information have been compromised.
- Those at informationisbeautiful.net created a very good image of World’s Biggest Data Breaches with sites where about 30,000 records were hacked. You can also find good goggle spreadsheet Balloon Race: Data Breaches – Public Data available featuring records used in the info graphic.
- Haveipeenpwned.com grants you full access to search in their data base using your username or email address.
Encryptions that are protected temporarily will not stay protected forever. It’s important for you to change your password, If your account was part of the one hacked, while making this changes, do not use similar password for different websites.
