This app allows to search the database of haveibeenpwned.com for a list of accounts (or email addresses) that have been leaked in a data breach that was exposed to the internet.
Once the name of one or more account(s) or email address(es) are added in the the app, it will check if any of those are found in the haveibeenpwned.com database. Schedule a daily (or weekly) check and the app will show a notification when a new account breach was detected.
The new function “Pwned password” can check if a password was included in a data breach.
Thanks to Troy Hunt for running ‘have I been pwned?’ (https://haveibeenpwned.com). Without his database, this app would not be possible!
Hacked? will send all the accounts you entered to the website https://haveibeenpwned.com to check for potential matches in the database. When checking for Pwned Passwords, the first 5 characters of the SHA-1 Hash of the password are sent to https://api.pwnedpasswords.com. Apart from that no password data is sent anywhere else.
