Secure your passwords
After your passwords have been checked for security issues, you’ll see 3 types of results.
Learn about compromised passwords
Important: We’ll ask you to change your Google Account password if we believe it’s unsafe, even if you don’t use Password Checkup. To secure a Google Account that has suspicious activity, or has been hacked, follow these steps.
Compromised passwords and username combinations are unsafe because they’ve been published online. We recommend that you change any compromised passwords as soon as you can.
View data breaches we check
We check for password and username combinations exposed through a wide variety of data breaches, but the list of data breaches we check may be incomplete. Our list includes sources such as:
- 17 Media
- 1.4B collection
- Collection 1-5
- Nexus Mods
Dismiss & restore warnings
To dismiss a warning, next to the compromised password, click More Dismiss warning.
Under “Dismissed warnings,” you can find and restore the warning.
To restore a dismissed warning, next to the warning, click More Restore warning.
Learn about reused passwords
If you use the same password for multiple accounts, you’re at greater risk of being hacked. We strongly recommend you use a unique password for every account.
Tip: Let Chrome create and save a strong password for your Google Account. Learn how to generate strong, unique passwords.
Learn about weak passwords
Passwords with obvious phrases, simple keyboard patterns, and single words can be easily guessed. We recommend you use strong passwords.

Google will notify you when we find any of your saved passwords online. You can turn these alerts on or off.
Google continues to check your passwords, even if alerts are turned off. If you turn this setting off, you might still receive alerts for up to 48 hours.
