is a practical and resourceful tool designed to enable
you to verify 🔍 if your personal data has been implicated in a data breach. Originally,
this initiative was born out of my deep interest in forensics and the analysis of data
breaches. The realization of the sheer volume of sensitive information exposed and the
potential harm it could cause quickly led me to transform this interest into a public
service. I was motivated to offer this service to everyone for free, making it accessible
to all who want to protect their personal data and privacy.

Aside from just checking emails and passwords, the website also facilitates users in
scrutinizing data breach information at a domain or sub-domain level
. For those
who can confirm their domain ownership, they gain access to a detailed analysis of the
data breaches that have affected their users.
An exciting addition to our suite of tools is the CXO Dashboard
. This feature is
particularly helpful for companies and corporations managing multiple domains. The CXO
Dashboard offers a unified view of data breaches and all associated analytics. This
consolidated perspective can significantly simplify the complex task of breach monitoring
across various domains, empowering organizations to understand and respond to security
incidents more efficiently and effectively.

You may wonder why you should choose XposedOrNot
over other breach
monitoring services. The answer lies in our goal to raise awareness about data breaches
and provide support to reduce the effects of such breaches. Every bit of help is a light
in the darkness, and we aim to add to that illumination.
Unlike traditional monitoring services that merely inform you of your exposure and the
volume of leaked records, XposedOrNot takes an extra step. We give each email a risk
score, notify if the password was exposed in plaintext, and provide information on the top
breaches where the email was compromised, among other details.
Data breaches are classified by industry on our platform, offering an insightful
perspective into the most affected sectors. Our aim is to foster transparency and enable
individuals to guard against data breaches effectively.
I've also incorporated an alerting feature that can be activated for individual websites
and domains whenever they appear in data breaches. This service is totally free and is
beneficial for everyone – from individual email users to corporations seeking to
comprehend their users' vulnerability to data breaches better.
Furthermore, our entire data set
can be queried and
integrated into your custom applications via our XposedOrNot API
. Detailed instructions
on using the XposedOrNot API in your projects can be found on our API playground. Keeping
with our ethos of free and open access to data, our API will continue to remain
completely free of charge
Lastly, I'd like to highlight that our application, API, and related files are all open source and hosted in GitHub
open-source approach helps improve the security posture of the platform and invites

and effective. Your contributions
can help further
strengthen this free public utility. Let's work together to make XposedOrNot even better!
