Site allows you to check if your email passwords have been stolen



“Pardon the interruption, your passwords are leaking”.  It’s a kind of incontinence.
   
So Geoffrey Fowler writes in the Washington Post Business, “StolenPassword, Here’s What to Do About It?” 

He gives a site “Have I Been Powned” here. 

One of my emails was found on seven sites that had been breached, but not on any dark web sites themselves.
  
Fowler recommends changing every password every 90 days with 2-step authentication and the use of really long hashed (like MF5) passwords with a professional app.
