Gmail passwords hacked. Check yours

Almost 5 million Gmail addresses and their passwords have been compromised and leaked on a Russian Bitcoin forum. Admins on the forum have removed the passwords from the text file, but the Internet is forever, so if your username is among those that have been hacked, you should change your password immediately.

Luckily, there’s a quick tool you can use to figure out if your account information was leaked. Just head to and input your email address. If you’re wary of inputting your email address on a site you’re not familiar with, the best course of action is simply to change your password as a precaution.
