    Have I Been Pwned has become a popular tool to find out whether or not you have been involved in a data breach, and after starting life as a one-man-band project, may soon be on the acquisition books.

    The HIBP website was launched in 2013 following a massive data breach at Adobe which led to the exposure of over 150 million user records and was designed to allow non-technical people to type in their email address and easily find out if their information was leaked or exposed in a security incident.
