Google Password Checkup

Google Password Checkup
Posted on 02/06/2019
In light of the recent massive data breaches and leaks of late (see Computer Chronicles 8.4 that was just recently emailed), we will be installing an additional step to protect the District from unauthorized access via weak passwords.

In the next day or so, you will notice a new extension in Chrome called "Password Checkup".

Password Checkup helps you resecure accounts that were affected by data breaches.

Wherever you sign-in, if you enter a username and password that is no longer safe due to appearing in a data breach known to Google, you’ll receive an alert. Please reset your password.

If you use the same username and password for any other accounts, please reset your password there as well.

I highly recommend you install this on any personal devices as well for added protection to your non-school accounts.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, let me know.
