TripAdvisor security breach – passwords leaked

I got this email from TripAdvisor which is self explanatory. Another big company bites the dust. My password at TripAdvisor is unique and not shared.

TripAdvisor breach

Dear TripAdvisor Traveler,

As part of our ongoing efforts to protect your security, TripAdvisor recently compared our member databases with lists of publicly leaked passwords. Unfortunately, your email and password were included on a list of leaked passwords. As a result, to protect your TripAdvisor account we have invalidated your password.

We recommend that you create a strong password that includes:

A unique combination of words, numbers, symbols, and both upper- and lower-case letters
A minimum of eight (8) characters
No commonly used words
Please visit the following page to create a new password for your account:

In addition, we recommend that you take additional steps for the safety of your other online accounts. If your discontinued TripAdvisor password is used on any other site or app, change your password on those sites/apps — and avoid using any password on more than one site.

Thank you for being a valued part of our community, and for taking a moment to create a new password. If you have questions about any of this information, please contact us at

Best Regards,
The TripAdvisor Team

If you have a TripAdvisor account, change your password.
