I just got a notification on my phone that my password for this site has been part of a data leak. Anyone else get this or do the site owners know what is going on?

update, my bad, think my phone was just suggesting updating my password.

-That is called "Phishing", in hacking terms, hackers sends to victims phones those massages as baits. When naive user click on link there, it will be redirected onto fake login screen to enter password and name. After that he is in hands of them and can easily forget about that site and others connected accounts. Suggestion to you is to updated password from secured computer machine previously scanned with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, but think it`s in your best interest, ..don`t touch anything at all.

It wasn't a txt message however, it was just a notification from my iphone in the privacy settings. It just popped up on the home screen saying I should change the password because it has been detected as part of a leak.

-Many reasons, try to find explanation for that notification if can, for example system detected that password you are using is too short. Without proper cause is hard to say what is it exactly.
