Is My Password Safe?

Category: Internet, Release Date: 23-Jun-2011

With all the high profile hacking that has been going on lately, you must be wondering if your password has been compromised or if your ultra-secure love1234 password is still safe to use. Recently numerous web companies including Sony, Nintendo and even the CIA have been victims of data theft and users of those services have been advised to change their passwords to prevent unauthorized access.

To combat this fear and make it easy for users to check whether their own data has been compromised, Daniel Drzelak launched a new website that allows concerned internet users to enter an email address and see whether it is one of the nearly 1 million records posted online by various ‘hacktivist’ groups such as LulzSec. His website,, searches a database of the stolen data that has been released publicly and if it finds a match will alert the user. Of course, your info would have had to be part of the highly publicized releases that have happened lately to show up but Daniel plans to update his site whenever a new database is made public
