Chrome suggesting a forum data breach?
#1
On logging in today my Chrome browser displayed this message. I logged out and tried again a couple of times and it seems to be pretty persistent.

Is this a false alarm or something more serious? I had a look around the forum and didn't see another mention, so I thought I'd flag it here.

I suppose Google is checking if you password is in the https://haveibeenpwned.com/Passwords database, and if it is, it's displaying the warning. The passwords in this database are a collection of several data breaches on random websites in the past years. We are not aware that our forum has been hacked.

Ah I misunderstood it then, my apologies.

Time to get it changed!
