Now might be the time to change your passwords. There is a new report than millions of email addresses and passwords have been compromised and that includes many in the Magic Valley.

CNet shared the news that there are an estimated 560 million more passwords that have been exposed.

It would be a great idea to go to this site and check to see if your email address has been compromised. It's called Have I Been Pwned. I entered my personal email address and discovered 4 instances where it has been shared (with my passwords) on hacker sites.

Even if you use a password manager program, don't think you're automatically safe. LastPass had a breach recently, too.

This is a great reminder that you need to change passwords often and use 2-step authentication when possible.
