Has your email address been exposed?
All the data on this site comes from “breaches” where data is exposed to persons that should not have been able to view it. A “breach” is an incident where data is inadvertently exposed in a vulnerable system, usually due to insufficient access controls or security weaknesses in the software. HIBP aggregates breaches and enables people to assess where their personal data has been exposed. For more details, visit the FAQ page.
What should I do if I find my email/password has been exposed in a breach?
At ETTE, we always recommend the use of two-factor authentication. By adding a layer of protection – typically in the form of your smartphone – an attacker with your password alone is unable to breach your account.
For third-party websites that do not support two-factor authentication, we recommend:
- Use a unique password for every account
- Increase password length to at least 8 characters
- Include a mix of letters, numbers, and characters
- Avoid easily guessed passwords
