Why am I seeing a 'data breach' message when logged into idibu?
If you use Google Chrome, you may experience the following pop-up message whilst logged into your account:
Don't worry, this is not connected to idibu in any way!
To summarise, whenever you type your credentials into a website, Google Chrome will now warn you if your username and password have been compromised in a data breach on another website or application. It will will suggest that you change them everywhere they were used.
Google first introduced this technology early this year as the 'Password Checkup' extension. In October it became a part of the
Password Checkup in your Google Account
, where you can conduct a scan of your saved passwords anytime. And now it has evolved to offer warnings as you browse the web in Chrome.
You can control this feature in Chrome Settings under Sync and Google Services. For now, it is being gradually rolled out for everyone signed in to Chrome as a part of Google's Safe Browsing protections.
