Welcome to Xposed Passwords, a free platform designed to help the general
public check if a password has been compromised and exposed in a data breach.
Our massive password collection is made up of real passwords that have been exposed in various data breaches around the world. To ensure the security of this information, we use a highly secure hashing algorithm called SHA-3 (Keccak-512) to hash and store the passwords in a one-way hash for verification. No passwords are stored in plain text.
For more information on the technical and operational controls we have in place to enhance the security of our platform, check out our blog post 'Xposed Passwords: Your Free Password Checker'.
1. Change your password right away: If you find out your password was
compromised in a data breach, change it immediately to a strong and unique password that
you're not using anywhere else.
2. Turn on two-factor authentication: Add an extra layer of security to your account by turning on two-factor authentication, which makes it harder for attackers to gain access.
3. Check your account activity: Look at your account activity logs to see if there's been any weird or unauthorized activity, like someone trying to log in or change your settings.
4. Update your security questions: If you had security questions associated with your account, update them, since they may have been compromised too.
5. Check your other accounts: Check if you used the same or similar passwords for any other accounts and update them to strong and unique ones.
6. Keep an eye on your finances: Check your bank and credit card accounts for any transactions you don't recognize or didn't authorize.
7. Report the breach: Let the relevant authorities know about the data breach, whether it's the company that owns the compromised account or a government agency.
8. Use a password manager: Consider using a password manager to create and store strong, unique passwords for all your accounts.
9. Stay alert: Be on the lookout for any signs of identity theft or fraudulent activity, and report anything suspicious right away.
10. Learn more about online security: Educate yourself on the best practices for online security and stay informed about the latest threats and vulnerabilities.
