Watchtower to the rescue

Experian notified me that they found my wife's email address and password on the dark web. Aha. So let's change that.

I took the opportunity to have her check Watchtower, where we found several items using the same password--a couple of them very very dangerous. So I worked with her to understand this and to use Watchtower to help her change a bunch of her logins.

Let me tell you, at $60/year until I die, Watchtower just for this instance probably saved me much more than that. I just thought I'd reinforce that for the lurkers out there.

And a tip of the hat to Experian and their IDNotify service for finding this for me. I have it for free, and probably will for the rest of my life as various entities get hacked and provide me with free monitoring.

    Thank you so much for writing this @adam1991! I am sorry to hear about the breach, but I am happy that 1Password and Watchtower were able to help you get things sorted out :)
