IPad just alerted me about my compromised passwords

My iPad just alerted me that a couple of dozen of my passwords (many old, stupid passwords), have appeared in a data leak. Which I greatly appreciate.

Notably, 1Password’s Watchtower isn’t aware of these compromises. I also had to go manually run the report to check for breaches.

I’ve been looking around at password managers (cross platform), and this (in addition to a weird sync issue) is another nudge.

Was it KeyChain which alerted you?

Yes. Settings | Passwords | Security recommendations

Glad it alerted you. I really like Apple’s built-in password management. I had an identity theft attempt (thwarted by the fact that I work in finance and got ahead of it, but scary nonetheless), and Apple’s password manager was like, “Uh…ya might want to change some of these ASAP”!

I’ve seen this in the past but it turned out to be because the password wasn’t in 1Password - when I migrated away from Keychain I changed a lot of passwords in 1Password but never bothered to update Keychain.
