Breach Monitoring in Enpass

Breach monitoring is a threat detection service in Enpass that alerts you whenever any website saved in Enpass is breached. Website-breaches have become frequent putting your personal-data, including passwords at risk making it visible to hackers thereby nullifying the security of strong passwords.

Breach monitoring sends immediate alerts and allows you to timely change your password before the damage is done. We recommend that user immediately change the passwords for accounts that are listed under Breached Audit section.

What information do you get about breached websites

Enpass publishes a short report to provide the information about the breached website. The report contains the name of breached website, breached date, types of data compromised, and the precaution you must take after a breach. To prepare this report, Enpass fetches the information managed by the trusted haveibeenpwned.com.
