Oh Wow - we constantly hear about major compromises of personal information - email addresses, passwords, etc. Maybe Grandma and Grandpa (with their clamshell cell and rotary dial phones) don't lose any sleep over this -- but most of us do.

This resource contains a simple, one-click service to help you instantly determine with one click whether any of your accounts have been compromised as a part of a corporate data breach, a malicious piece of software on your system, or any other security breach. They have information on over 270 million accounts and a million and a half passwords that have been hacked.

Unlike many security services that require a hi-tech background to access information, this one is simple. Just go there and type in any e-mail address you use click the blue tab and if your account is OK the system comes back with "Nope, looks like you're one of the lucky ones". If the system shows that you have been compromised, you can take protective measures (password change etc.)

Better safe than sorry!
