    Not under a rock.
    As some people know, a lot of breaches happened recently.

    A lot of sites were infected by that hack, and a lot of passwords (encrypted, decrypted, hashes, etc) were leaked

    If you want to check if your information was compromised, enter your email address here:
    https://haveibeenpwned.com

    I already have been pwned...

    I really recommend changing your password from time to time.
    Stay safe! :)

    lol it says I got hit 10 times, pretty much all in 2015.
    Never had an issue, though I think 2015 was around the time I transitioned to a new primary password...

    Still this is pretty common knowledge. Given free programs like keepass exist it's hard to excuse not using multiple passwords. Either you're lazy and will never use safe password strats, or you already do. So threads like this are kinda pointless.

    Only hit I got was for NexusMods, but my pass on that site and others with the same username have long-since been changed due to a different issue.

    I like how all my breaches come from obscure forums.

    One of my email accounts "Got pwned". Luckily it wasn't something I used for anything important.
