How Some Leaks Are Used In YOUR Favor

One of the security plugins we install on all our client’s sites compares (encrypted versions of) all the passwords of your WordPress user accounts against a massive database of millions of known-hacked passwords, typically available on “the dark web” to hackers for a small fee, and alerts you (and us) if any matches are found.

We’ll notify you if you’re at risk. You might not be able to log in temporarily if it’s a particularly risky password.

Use the “forgot password?” link on your login page to reset if needed.
