The largest collection of passwords in the entire history of the Internet has appeared on the hacker forum. The hacker posted a huge text file containing over 8 billion passwords that were allegedly collected in a variety of different hacks.
Today the network has about 4.7 billionusers, and numerically, the RockYou2021 compilation could potentially include the passwords of the entire global online population. For this reason, users are advised to take immediate precautions.
To protect their data, experts recommend:
▪ Use Identity Leak Checker and Password Leak Checker.
▪ If your data has been compromised, change the passwords of all Internet accounts. With an online generator, you can create complex passwords.
▪ Enable two-factor authentication (2FA) for all of your online accounts.
▪ Monitor incoming spam, unwanted text and phishing messages. Don't click on any links, especially in emails from senders you don't know.
