Possible Data Breach: Creditsavvy.com.au, Change Your Password Now

Just received an email from Google indicating there has been a breach on the: https://www.creditsavvy.com.au

I am not sure if its just me or its happening on a more border bases, my partners creditsavvy account has also been compromised. I have now changed the password for both.

This is the email I got from google:

One or more of the passwords stored in your Google Account was found in a data breach from a site or app that you use.

Your Google Account is not affected, and you can secure your saved passwords now using Password Checkup

After login google has indicated my Creditsavvy account has been compromised. Check yours.

No I have not been scammed.

  • This will happen over and over and over again as long as companies keep storing data on centralized servers.

      What alternative would you recommend?

      It's obviously not all data on "centralised servers" that's been comprised - there's lots more to security than just where.

      • 99.9999% IT shops store their info on centralised servers. I don't think this has anything to do with security breach.

    It's okay they'll just give us $3 and all will be forgiven. Owait wrong company sorry.

    Thank God I have been using Dashlane for different passwords for different places, ever since getting my uphold account hacked.

    I used a unique email address for Credit Savvy, and it isn't (yet) appearing in any data breaches on https://haveibeenpwned.com/

  • Just Deleted my Creditsavvy account BTW because no space for that kinda stuff with me anymore

    Another reason not to be stuffed about wondering what my credit score is. Can't believe people stress over a rubbish credit score calculator.

    Just because google is saying your password has been compromised, and that same password was used on creditsavvy.com.au does NOT mean that it was a databreach. It just means your "abcd1234" password has been leaked from some other place. Mods should delete this thread, it's incorrect and defamatory.

      Yes, it sounds like the OP has misinterpreted what Google's password breach system is reporting. The issue is more likely that the OP is re-using passwords which could cause his/her Creditsavvy account to be hacked.

  • Google warns me on nearly every site. Creditsavvy included.
    I use 2FA and randomised passwords kept in bitwarden and every service has its own email address as I have my own M365 tenant.
    Small price to pay for peace of mind.

  • OP, did you enable multi-factor authentication?

  • Thanks for the heads up.
