You might not have been hacked but that doesn’t mean hackers don’t have your information!
Have you ever wondered how hackers could possibly get your details? The details that will ultimately be used against you and the next thing you know you’ve been hacked. Well its quite often due to no fault of your own but rather the web services you use. Have you used an Adobe account before, or maybe even LinkedIn? Well these are town of hundreds of know sites that have been breached by hackers. With Literally millions of people’s information being leaked from similar breaches its very possible that you information is out there too. Just another reason you should not have the same passwords for all your logins and using different passwords for different sites.
If you would like to see if you information has ever been leaked visit this website and enter your email. It will check your email against known breaches. If you find results on any of your emails then you should make sure to change your passwords.
