Checking if your password has been compromised

When setting or changing your password, DreamHost checks it against haveibeenpwned's API.

If your password has been found in the API or if it has been found to be a weak password, the panel will then advise you (but not force you) to update it in an effort to make it more secure.

View the following article for guidelines on how to create a secure password.
