iOS 17’s release on all supported Apple devices have surely been a good time for many. Lots of new features that definitely improve the iPhone and even bring it up to speed compared to other phones, since iOS has been lacking compared to other phones and phone operating systems.
But with the introduction of the new iOS 17, you will find that some features are improved, like the Compromised Passwords features. But if you’re just using an iPhone for the first time, then you might be confused on what this is. In this guide, I will tell you what Compromised Passwords are, and why they are bad for you.
What Are Compromised Passwords on iPhone?
When you go to your Settings and go to Passwords, you will find yourself in all of the saved passwords for different apps and websites.
But you’ll find a red color at the top that says Security Recommendations, which features the Compromised Passwords from all of the websites and apps you own.
So, what are Compromised Passwords? These are passwords that have basically been found in a data leak that Apple frequently looks into.
Since Apple has access to your saved passwords, they are able to find your passwords in data leaks from multiple apps and websites. They will then warn you that the password might potentially be compromised and subject to hacks and other things.
When you do find the passwords that are compromised, you can change the passwords on these websites and apps to a more secure password that was not found in any data leaks.
It’s a good way to ensure that your accounts on these apps and websites are safe from cyber-attacks.
