Snapchat Password Checker
Snapchat was hacked, confirmed by Snapchat on Dec 27, 2013
If you have a Snapchat account, we strongly suggest that you immediately:
- Change your Snapchat password
- Check if you have re-used your Snapchat password on any other websites and if so, change those passwords too.
The LastPass security challenge can assist you in doing so.
Was *My* Snapchat Password Hacked?If you would like to find out if your Snapchat password was one of the ones that were leaked, you can use the below tool:
Wait a Minute, Why Is This Tool Safe?You already changed your password, right? You no longer use that old password anywhere else, right? If not please make sure you do that first. The above tool asks you to enter your Snapchat password, and then computes its SHA-1 hash and sends the result to LastPass.com to search the list of leaked password hashes. A hash is a mathematical function that is simple to perform in one direction, but very difficult to reverse. Meaning, the tool will convert your password into a series of characters in such a way that it will be very difficult to re-construct your original password.
Only the hash of your password will be sent to LastPass.com's servers, not your actual password. This hash will not be stored or logged at all. Please view source the page if you're technically inclined.
Note that if you used a simple password, such as one based on dictionary words, then it might be possible to reconstruct your original password. This is what all of the concern is about: the hashes of simple passwords can be easily reconstructed to reveal the original actual password.
