You can check if your LinkedIn account password was stolen by hackers earlier today with an app called LeakedIn.It’s run by Fictive Kin, a design studio that has a deal with Betaworks, and designer Chris Shiflett.
However, we still advise that you use this at your own risk.
A huge number of passwords were leaked from LinkedIn earlier today and shared on a Russian hacker site. LeakedIn will check to see if you password is on that list.
