With RoboForm’s latest update, you can stop wondering which of your passwords have been identified in data breaches. We’ve got you covered. Besides evaluating the strength of your passwords, RoboForm now informs you whenever one of your passwords has been found in a data breach. A compromised password should be changed immediately because the security of that account is now at risk. This update makes it simple to identify and replace passwords that have been compromised.

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.
