Have I been pwned is a website that allows internet users to check if their personal data has been compromised by data breaches.  The site was created by security expert Troy Hunt and has been widely touted as a valuable resource for internet users wishing to protect their own security and privacy. If your address shows up on this list it doesn't necessarily mean that your account has been compromised but you should change your password.  This is just one tool and therefore if your account doesn't show up on this site it doesn't mean that it hasn't been compromised.  The site may be accessed at https://haveibeenpwned.com.
