data breaches

Jump to solution

Using Web Advisor to change passwords following data breaches but I am seeing several sites listed for which I do not have, and never knowingly have had, an account with. How come and what should I do?

so the only way to get rid of it from the "New Breaches" list is to say I've dealt with it so it moves into "addressed breaches"?

Well, I got a new data breach that indicates it was from a cellular subscriber data.  Does that mean they got it from my provider or that it just came off my phone?  I have found that though I have VPN protection it seldom stays on or presumably comes on to tell me anything.  Always says I'm fine and yet that breach happened two days ago.  Also, they list other breaches from two years ago which I have seen before.  Thing is that they are so old, though someone is still using one of them, that I don't have the password anymore so I can't change them.  All the sites are ones I haven't used in years.  So, what do we do then.  I tried to go into one of them to change the password anyway and never got a reply to do so.  Any info anyone got from those old ones will have information that has changed except for my name.
