Default Check where your email address was breached

This is fun: enter your email address(es) and see which of the many public data breaches it's in. (I'm looking at you, lisapea.)

Have I been pwned? Check if your email has been compromised in a data breach :freakout:

Despite the spammy-sounding site name and the hackerish logo ';-- ... (a classic SQL injection trick - see Bobby Tables) and the very idea of entering your email addresses on a site because it suggested you do, it seems legit. Have I Been Pwned? - Wikipedia - Is "Have I Been Pwned's" Pwned Passwords List really that useful? - Information Security Stack Exchange

Chances are if you've had a LinkedIn account or a Dropbox account for more than a few years, that email address will be in there (and you will have responsibly changed your password when those providers warned you about their breaches).

One of my email addresses appears in a Neopets breach ... that's obviously going back some time ... when Little Miss JoeP was playing it.

I also realise that I have a lot of email addresses, some of them old work addresses that are no longer active. But lots still active. And the important ones have not been pwned! :D

Free thought! Please take one!
