Data breach?
« on: July 22, 2020, 05:05:36 PM »
I logged on the site today from a new laptop, and Chrome reported that my password was compromised in a data breach. Has anyone else received this message? It could just be new laptop weirdness, but I'm changing my password just in case.

We have not had any reports - did this come from a talku2.com email address? Or did Google tell you your talku2 password was compromised?

This.

What probably happened was that logging in on a new device made my Google account think someone else got a hold of my account information. It's probably nothing to worry about unless it happens to another user.

Was it Chrome or Google that gave you the alert?

And was it like an in-browser message (popup or otherwise) or an email sent to you?

It was in-browser, so it must have been Chrome.
