HaveIBeenPWNed is a website that informs the public if their accounts have been involved in a data breach. The most recently added data includes over 70 million email addresses from the Naz.API, a list of login credentials obtained by various means. These include any email and password combinations used with associated websites. In instances like these, it is best practice to verify whether or not you’ve been compromised and change any leaked passwords. This is especially important if you reuse passwords across sites. Upon entering your email, HaveIBeenPWNed will inform you if your email address was found among the leaked information.
Their website is www.haveibeenpwned.com
If found in a data breach, read the results carefully and take appropriate steps to limit the potential impact.
