How safe is your Password?

How safe is your Password?

In this last week, Google announced a new tool to make sure your passwords have not been compromised and to push healthy password habits.

With data breaches happening everyday on high traffic applications (like DoorDash), cyber security and password security should be at the top of your list. Once your password becomes one of the 4 million that has been apart of a third-party data breach, then it can be tested on other sites that you may use the same password with.

Which is where Google comes in.

This new tool, Password Checkup, is available for anyone with a google account. Google created this due to the fact that sixty percent of Americans reportedly use the same password for multiple accounts. Once you log in, you can check if your password has been compromised, how many of your accounts use the same password, and which passwords can be stronger.
