PassProtect is a valuable tool for people who are concerned with the fidelity of their passwords, whether they're developers and security professionals or simply average users who want to make sure that they haven't bee subject to an attack or breach. The Chrome extension automatically assesses users' usernames and passwords to see whether they've been involved in any high-profile security issues in recent years.

One of the scariest things about data breaches is that people might have no idea that they been subject to one until it's too late. Hackers can gain access to passwords and then lie in wait until they can gather as much information as possible. However, users can get ahead of the attack if they change their passwords in time, and PassProtect is a tool that lets users know if they need to.
