RoboForm Now Warns You About Compromised Passwords

With RoboForm’s latest update, not only does RoboForm help evaluate the strength of your passwords, it will also advise you which of your passwords have been compromised and identified in any data breaches.

If you have a compromised password, it should be changed immediately because the security of that account is now at risk.

To detect compromised passwords, RoboForm continuously scans against a list maintained by Have I Been Pwned (HIBP), a highly regarded service that collects credentials exposed in data breaches.

This feature is currently available on Windows using the Start Page or Chrome extension and on Mac using the Start Page or Safari extension. Other browsers will be supported in a future update.
