    Who is behind Have I been pwned?

    "I'm Troy Hunt, a Microsoft Regional Director and Most Valuable Professional awardee for Developer Security, blogger at troyhunt.com, international speaker on web security and the author of many top-rating security courses for web developers on Pluralsight.

    I created Have I been pwned? as a free resource for anyone to quickly assess if they may have been put at risk due to an online account of theirs having been compromised or "pwned" in a data breach. I wanted to keep it dead simple to use and entirely free so that it could be of maximum benefit to the community."​

    This service is actually pretty great, I've used it and have been notified twice now, one being just yesterday for the tumblr hack. There's not harm just setting up this update to have the bot look out for your email addresses in case any of them turn up in data dumps from breaches.

    Very good service and indeed accurate, my two primary emails are indeed pwned because I've created account on Tumblr and Malwarebytes before.

    However that does not decrease my self-esteem in the security. ;) Cause until now mistakes from webmasters happened often in such rare situation.

    Useful service. One of my emails from 8 years ago did get pwned on VK, the russian social media site. I'm not even russian and don't know why I signed up there. o_O
