New 1Password feature checks whether your password has been leaked

Originally published at:

Password manager 1Password has added a new feature to its software that allows users to check whether their passwords are amongst the 500 million leaked passwords collected by security researcher Troy Hunt. He has created a service that allows 1Password to check whether a password hash appears in his database.

How can one themselves be sure AgilBits isn’t compromised themselves when your giving your password out what protections are they conducting to verify they don’t store your keystroke for hackers to skim. Isn’t giving them your password just like the leaked password? I would say check your accounts online and if your not sure change the password to use more random password.
