    "In light of all the recent data breaches and the mounting insecurity of working on the Internet, Hacked-emails.com is a quick way to tell if your personal email has been compromised. When I first tried it I found multiple hacks from the darknet (scary!) and a few from clearnet and quite a few from seeminly secure websites like LinkedIn. This is a must in today's environment."

    "I really like this site, and there is nothing worse then getting hacked and having your data stolen, and this website makes it very easy to tell if you have been hacked. It also tells me real time in the future if I have been hacked so I can react to it right away. I also like their feature where you can look up passwords to see if they are either common or if they have been used in hacked accounts before."

    "This page called "4 Things to Do Immediately When Your Facebook Account Is Hacked" is good if you need info about what to do after you get hacked, but it doesn't help me with my problem with trying to find out if my account is being pirated. So, it's pretty useless to me."
