    Kingsisle Password Data Breach

    I have recieved an email from google stating that freekigames has undergone a data breach, and some peoples passwords have been leaked.

    I would like to know what has occurred. I do not play this game faithfully anymore but nonetheless I felt it important to bring up in the event that it has affected others in the community as well.

    (haa bit ironic that i am logging into a non htlm secure site here but yeahhhh)

    The image was not attached correctly to your post and had to be removed.

    Are you sure that this was a real email? The freekigames website hasn't been there for months.

    Yes the mail is from google, as the follow up verifications are all on Google itself. I have attached another image below, hopefully it will show up this time round. You are right in stating freekigames no longer exists, however upon clicking the change password button, it takes me to https://www.wizard101.com/game/trivia , so i assume freeki games has probably rebranded to this section instead on the wizard101 site. Thus, I still think it is a cause for concern.

    EDIT: typing in freekigames.com redirects you to https://www.wizard101.com/game/trivia . I am not 100% sure on how URL redirect mechanics work, but yeah I still am worried considering google emailed directly.
