The social network «VKontakte» announced a new change in the security system. Now the social network will automatically compare the user’s password with the passwords published in the merged databases. If a match is found, the user will receive a notification asking them to change their password.

It is noted that the process is fully automatic, and the data is encrypted to avoid leaks. Leak monitoring will take place constantly, and both Russian and international services are checked.

At the same time, the requirements for new passwords have been strengthened: the system will not accept a combination that is too simple and will force it to be complicated by additional characters of different types.
