For what it’s worth, password managers are one of the best options at safeguarding passwords for users, in that they can suggest as well as store security codes in encrypted databases to ensure a user does not have to constrain themselves with remembering codes or repeating them.

Then, there is the fact that some of the best password managers allow users to check the validity of their passwords against any compromise.

For a safe bet, the Google Password Manager has this checkup feature to analyze whatever issues a user may have encountered with their passwords. What the user has to do though is to go directly to their Chrome Settings.

In the ‘Settings’, they need to click on the ‘Privacy and Security’ tab before they can see the ‘Password Manager’. It is at this point the user can ‘Check Passwords’ to see whatever issues their codes may have or may encountered.

Then there is another option that some might consider in that it monitors dark web activities and provides update on password health to its user, which is ‘Dashlane’.

There is also 1Password, which performs similarly to Pwned as it automatically runs background checks on passwords and immediately warns of any compromise to it. It has a built in Watchtower feature that alerts users to any breach of their password.

One of the significant things about password managers is that it is used basically for the intention of catching account breaches before it escalates into something negative on your end. And having social accounts like the Google tools that automatically alerts third party log ins to any of your profiles, does well to secure your internet activities even without the aid of applications like the haveibeenpwned.com.

It is thus very important for users to take quick actions into any alerts received in their email accounts should such breaches be noticed immediately.

For Google Chrome users who have Chrome as their default browser, they should do well to pay attention to pop ups whenever they enter their passwords online, this is because the browser has the ability to tap into a number of databases of reported breaches to know of a compromise the minute you log in to a site.
