When I logged in to my Alamy account just now I got a message on my iPad saying that my password was in a data leak and should be changed for the Alamy site immediately.  
 

Is anyone else aware of this issue?  I have contacted contributors relations.

Some browsers (eg Chrome) have a function/extension that checks if the password you are using is in a database with compromised passwords that were part of known big hacks.

It has nothing to do with Alamy.

You can check the database here.

Thanks Win, you may well be right.  I have been in an out of the Alamy Website several times today (sad I know) but the message only came up this afternoon.  Anyway I have changed it......
