The release notes of the latest version of Kaspersky Password Manager confirms it checks for possible password leaks and I have had 2 such reports of different passwords, however I believe they have not been leaked or compromised.
Does anyone know how this report is triggered, what makes it believe/how would they know that a specific password has been leaked/compromised?
I use KPM across different devices and multiple platforms as intended. Surely this wouldn’t trigger the report as if ‘unexpected users’ are logging in?
Maybe it will report for all passwords not changed within a set time period???
Can Kaspersky please reveal this information as it is not in the release notes?

If I understand those resources correctly, my password has been found on a site that lists leaked passwords which could mean its leaked from my data or by a coincidence someone else has the same password to any site and his data has been leaked.
You’re most welcome !
- Someone else on the internet using the same password as you, is not the issue, unless, they are also using the same email address.
- Any alerts, of this nature, change all passwords & follow good password security guidelines, create and always use strong passwords, as follows: the password contains at least eight characters, including uppercase and lowercase Latin letters, digits, and special characters; change passwords on a regular basis.
