Compromised Passwords/Account Verification

August 21, 2018 by kiranbadi1991 | Comments Off on Compromised Passwords/Account Verification | Filed in Development, Security

I browse a internet a lot and have accounts across many sites. Sometimes I forget and tend to reuse my password. My account has been compromised many times.

Today while resetting the password for GitHub, I came across the interesting site which helps users to prevent reuse of compromised passwords and informs the user if his password has been compromised.

As a developer we often need to provide some extra security to our users and this site seems to be best effort by the individual that serves the larger purpose(It exposes information via Rest API).

Hopefully community notices this effort and we secure ourselves by sharing information.

Thank you Troy Hunt.
