    This is a first for me, just got notification that my Account details for BoW have be published “somewhere” on the internet by Microsoft Edge (didn’t know it had this feature). Anyhow the issue is probably at my end, but users might want to check their security measures and possibly look to change their passwords.

    If Edge notified you you might want to check some of your email addresses you use for logins here:

    https://haveibeenpwned.com/

    and if they are found: change passwords ASP.

    A few web browsers have been doing this for a while. It’s not that your details have been taken from this website, more that a matching combination of user and password have been found to have been leaked (I’m sure I’m not the only one guilty of using the same email/username/password combination on more than one site?)

    Not necessarily a data beach from OTT (which is why the message is saying “somewhere on the internet”)
