Millions of Brits Accounts breached since 2004

Brits changed their passwords due to data breach

Time to change that Password!
The UK ranked seventh worldwide for most security breaches over the previous 18 years, according to a survey by the top VPN provider. Additionally, 8 out of 10 accounts that were also compromised had their passwords taken, endangering the security of millions of accounts.
The most frequent items that hackers take during a data breach are usernames, passwords, and email addresses, and for many websites, that is all it takes for someone else to log in using the account.
