TECH TIP: LEAKED PASSWORD MESSAGE? HERE’S WHAT TO DO
What does the password leaked message mean in the Chrome and Edge browser?
Password Leaked Warning in Microsoft Edge
If the message below appears when logging into a website, what does it mean?
In MS Edge, when you turn on Password Monitor, the browser checks your saved passwords against a large database of known leaked passwords stored in the cloud. If any username-password combinations match what’s in the database, they’ll appear on the Password Monitor page in Microsoft Edge Settings.
Change your password on all websites or apps using the same username and password combination. Make sure a different password is used for each app and website.
Password Leaked Warning in Google Chrome
Google Chrome doesn’t show what site or app caused the breach as they use a heavily encrypted and secured algorithm. In this case, since the website or application will not be exposed, the best action would be to change the password for your email address to ensure the login is not compromised.
