right who's going first to test it, here's the link haveibeenpwned.com  let us know what you get. it gives me the all clear on 1 email address but my chrome ext.  PassProtect chrome.google.com shows ibeenpwned, both the same outfit i believe Okta.  yes i know what your thinking and yes, it does have a system to avoid leaking your password itself. more here cnet.com

i got 6 mentions,i hear people are rushing to change their email password,although that's a good thing,it's not your email provider that has been breached. the password that needs to be changed is whoever you signed up with,that is mentioned in your pwned. so however strong your password may be is not the issue.

just thought i would come out from hiding under my desk,what about you :salute
ignorance does not help your post one bit but it probably says an awful lot about you.

So what is this really about, testing your emails for free, oh! no someone has my email address, that's really nice of these guys, frightening some in the bargain. or is it another advertising gimick to buy a product like 1 password. i have different email accounts for different things, social media, banks only, friends & family. for those that are worried just open another email account, start fresh, but you'll have to notify all your contacts. then you'll have peace of mind. i must say they make it look good in the vid.
