Do you ever wonder if the password you have been using is compromised? Well, there’s an easy way for developers to check using your GitHub account. Now GitHub will tell you if the password has been compromised through some sort of hack on a third party site. All you have to do is go to GitHub and change your password and GitHub will tell you if the password has been compromised or not. If it has, then update all services using that password. If you receive no message about a password issue, then you can be fairly confident that the password in use is safe (for now). There are other third party websites which will check your passwords for you, but I hesitate in checking passwords through some sort of service like this.
(Oh and don’t forget to change your GitHub password back to what it was initially)
