Do you think you may have been hacked? Check it out


I can’t vouch for the accuracy of the site but I checked out my names and Emails and one old Yahoo account I haven’t used for a couple of years came back as having been hacked.

The Tea Party Economist says go to this website to find out.

I wanted to know if my email has been leaked. There is a site that lets you check. It’s here: https://haveibeenpwned.com

It has had favorable reviews.

    Checked my old yahoo email with your links and it appears that I am safe. It’s been years since I used it anyway. Thanks for passing this along! Nice to know.

    I have to be honest here, I haven’t made use of your links you shared…for now…but I will return.
    I just wanted to stop by and send along my “Thanks so much for the condolences of our losing Winston!! Much appreciated.”

    Nope none of mine have been hacked. Yet. Of course if it’s a phishing site I just gave them places to look.

      It was from the daily mail so felt it authentic.

    Mine was, Yahoo sent me an email that my email may have been compromised. I just checked on the link in your post and my LinkedIn acct – one I didn’t even know I had – was hacked.

        Just remembered – several months ago I noticed a new user on my Netflix account – stream only, no DVDs. My mom, and kids are users on my account, but this was a user I didn’t recognize. When I changed my password I checked the box that required every device to sign in with the new password. This step is just a little extra safeguard.

        Along with the email that my Yahoo account may have been compromised I also received a notice that device in China was trying to log in to my email account. Changed my password and required every device to sign in with the new password.
