I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Enable search and notifications for email addresses using the "+" syntax

    A lot of people use a syntax such as troyhunt+foo@hotmail.com where foo is a unique identifier for the site. They do this so that if they begin getting spammed, they can identify the source their email came from.

    At the moment, HIBP treats this is a totally unique email address so if I've search for the parent email address without the "+" syntax, it won't be found. This idea is to ensure that searches and notifications recognise the syntax and return addresses that are logically still the same account.

    One thing HIBP would also need to do is specify which…

    • Add a link to the site explaining what to do when you are a victim of data breach.

      My email address poped up as being part of a breach. What are the next steps?
      * void the respective accounts?
      * Just change the password?
      * Other options?

      It would be nice just to have a link to some mitigation actions for present and also for the future.

      Thanks for the effort put on this site

      • Search by phone number

        It would be neat if you could test for pwned accounts searching by phone number. Some utility companies know my phone number but not my email.

        • Allow root domain to verify subdomains

          This idea can be broken down into two seperate ideas, I'd be happy with either.

          1. When registering to monitor a domain that is a subdomain of another, for example subdomain.domain.com, the verifcation email should be able to be sent to postmaster@domain.com.

          2. Allow an option to monitor a domain and all subdomains.

            • Allow users to search for an email address by hash rather than sending the email to the API in cleartext.

              Under the suspicion that submitted email addresses are being harvested, a privacy conscious user could feel safer checking for the presence of their email in the database by submitting a hash of it rather than the email address itself. I, for instance, have two email addresses: one which everyone knows, and one which very few people know. I'm very curious about the latter, but there's no way I'd enter it into any web form.

              • Notify email owner privately to limit malicious intents

                I like the fact that I get to know if my email is pwned in any of the latest breaches (so opting out is not really an option), but I can see a malicious intent here as well.

                Say a hacker needs to get access to my email account, then the first thing to try is your service to know if my password exists in any of the known breaches, even though I might change it but some users won't or it may be easily guessable.

                My idea is, when the user enters their email address, send the results by…

                • Allow a family member to accept sending notification to someone else.

                  For example, my parents wouldn't know what to d with this, but I'd like to add them with the option to report to me when they are compromised so I can fix it for them. Ideally, I'd add their emails and they would receive a notice to accept or deny, if they accept I get alerts on them in the future. Can optionally leave sensitive items out of report. I could also see this as helpful for consultants but maybe you could sell that. I'd actually pay for it for my parents too.

                    Would it be possible to Register for HIBP EMail Notification via another designated EMail Address provided, to which the HIBP Notification could be "forwarded" ? ie.: Confirmed and Secure Registration under a designated EMail Address, for one or more 'Closed' EMail Addresses ?

                    • add a timeline of breaches

                      It would be great to see a timeline of breaches, and a graph of the total accounts compromised (maybe separately showing the date of breach and when it was discovered/reported). I know that this year has seen a few big breaches disclosed, thanks Yahoo & MySpace, although they date back somewhat.

                        • Add domain search capability to the API functions

                          I've been subscribing to the alerts for breaches related to our corporate domain, which is fantastic, but now that we have Splunk in house, I was hoping to connect directly to the API from a forwarder.

                            When showing results of searches of pwned accounts, you should show the date of the file or hack so users can be informed whether they have changed their passwords since that date.

                              Nice, now I know that my mail-address was included in the Exploit.In and Adobe breach. But the Exploit.In breach does not hint any clue whether we talk about the same service (=Adobe) or not. I can understand that you cannot mail me a password. After all you don't know me. I might as well be an imposter. But it would be cool if you could internally setup your database such that it outputs whether the password in an amalgamated-list-breach that did not specify a service like Exploit.In was identical to the one in another breach like the Adobe breach. That…

                              • Enabl API to be queried such that it returns only the breach name

                                At present, searching the API returns all data about the breach including description and other meta data. For high volume API consumers, it would be preferable to return just the breach name. Meta data about the breach could then be retrieved in a single API query to the breach service. This would reduce the response size for each query by more than 90%.

                                • Add wildcard support for spamgourmet addresses

                                  Spamgourmet.com allows a user to create disposable email addresses on the fly. That way a unique email address can be used for each web site you sign up for. The structure of an address is identifier[.##].username@spamgourmet.com, where the identifier can change per site and [.##] is an optional max number of emails you want to receive. Because a different address is used for each site it is currently impossible to query HIBP for breaches of all sub-addresses, like *.username@spamgourmet.com. Allowing wildcard search and notification for spamgourmet addresses (or its many alias domains) would enable users to…

                                  • Domain wide search results - Refined export of data

                                    It would be great to refine the export data for domain wide searches.

                                    Something i would like to do is notify the users of new breaches. If i run the report periodically, i can easily compare the results and for any differences script a personalised mailout informing my users of such exploit.

                                    Cheers,
                                    Ivan
