Google password checkup

I have a message from Google which says I have a compromised password. When I follow the link it tries to change a password at a reference http://192.168.etc which relates to my virgin media hub but the google link doesn't allow me to change the password and I get a message 'this site cannot be reached'.

On the 2019 post 'data breach' a similar discussion exists but it doesn't seem to be a real breach and there doesn't seem to be a conclusion as to the action required so I'm not clear if I need to change the password on my virgin hub or not 

Any advice

Re: Google password checkup

Why would Google be looking at your passwords?

I'd be more worried about that

Re: Google password checkup

Chrome checks the hash of the passwords you have saved in the chrome password store against known compromises (e.g. https://haveibeenpwned.com).  If it detects a username/hash combo that has featured in a known compromise, it will inform you by way of a pop-up.

my guess is that you've changed the password on your hub to something that you use elsewhere and that password has been compromised (you can check at the above link). 

You should probably review the sites that you're still using said password on and change it..

Data security

Google is saying one of my passwords has been compromised at site http://192.168.10.1 which I think it virgin hub.

Can this be the case. Do I need to change my hub password if so how. I may have posted this query already but I haven't seen any replies and I don't know where to look anyway

Re: Data security

192.168.10.1 is not the hub address. Its a internal address but you should change all your passwords that use the same password as you had there.

Google doesn't mean that site was compromised it means the password you used there has been compromised.

as that IP is internal you must have used the same password online somewhere

Re: Google password checkup

Hi thank you all for taking the time to look at my problem. I think I would change this password but I've no idea what the site or the password relate to. When I type http://192.168.10.1/ into the search it returns 'this site can't be reached http://192.168.10.1/ took too long to respond'. Presumably this means the site doesn't exist anymore. Should I just dismiss the warning?

Re: Google password checkup

Because it’s 192.168.0.1 not 192.168.10.1

192.168.XXX.XXX are internal IP addresses. they are devices on an internal network not on the internet

Re: Google password checkup

Hi Djinn100,

Thanks for using the forums to get this looked into, I'm sorry if this has been causing some confusion for you. 

I'm unable to comment on Google's side, but I can give you some help if you do feel like you need to change your Hub's password. 

I have a link here - Change Hub Password - which will help. 

Please let us know if you need any further help.

Thanks,

Megan_L
