If you set a simple password for your email or social networking accounts, or if you use the same password on various websites, your accounts can be easily hacked and your personal data stolen. Use Kaspersky Security Cloud to make sure that your passwords are secure. When you enter your password on a website, Kaspersky Security Cloud will check it and tell you if it is not secure, or if it is already in use somewhere else.

To configure password checking:

  1. In the main window of Kaspersky Security Cloud, click the gear button Image: Settings icon in Kaspersky Security Cloud.
