The Next Web: This site lets you check your password against 306 million leaked passwords

The Next Web: This site lets you check your password against 306 million leaked passwords. “…Troy Hunt, the founder and creator of Have I Been Pwned, has launched a tool where you can check your password to see if it’s been compromised. The way it works is pretty simple. Just type in your password, and it will compare it against a database of over 306 million passwords, collected over several years.” Yeah no, I’m not typing in my passwords anywhere but a login box, but this is fun to play with. (Someone used 111 as a password? Really?)
