Am I Compromised?
This search facility checks if your email address has been found on any databases that are known to have been hacked. LinkedIn, Adobe, MyFitnessPal, Zomato, Tumblr and Kickstarter are among the thousands of companies whose defences have been breached.
What if my email address is on one or more of the databases?
- You should never again use any passwords associated with that email address. Re-use will elevate the risk of your compromised details being used to log into sites.
- Choose a new password(s) and gradually switch all your existing passwords over to the new one(s).
- Seriously, get a password manager. They require you to remember one decent master password then they generate a new, secure password for each site. You just check the password manager if you need to log in afresh anywhere. You get used to it in a day or two. Consider LastPass, Dashlane or 1Password.
- If your search returned a large number of results and you aren’t a confident computer user, contact us for some training. Details on the right.
And if my email is not on one of the databases?
That’s good, but we’re only searching the databases that have publicly admitted breaches. You should regularly change your passwords and use good security practices, including a password manager.
Is it safe to use this site?
Yes, we do not log any data that your search returns. If you have concerns about security you’re welcome to contact us on +61 8 9325 1196.
