It sucks getting tons of spam email or having an account hacked and sometimes you have no clue how these people gain access to that information. If you want an easy to use service that will give you an idea of how your email address or username might have been leaked have i been pwned? is the place to go. You can easily check to see if your email or username has been leaked in previous breaches, and even check if your password that you have used on multiple websites has been leaked. (You know you should not do that right?)
The Not So Great
There is a lot of great information on the site, but it would be nice if they would link to the sites where your address was leaked from. That might not always be practical, but it would at least let you go and change your account on those sites if you have not done so already
There are other paid services that will give you similar information, some paid site even use the have i been pwned? API to get the information. Why pay when you can get it here for free.
