  1. Have a page with mitigation directions for the technically challenged.

    For those of us who are technically challenged, directions on how to mitigate any damage if found to have been breached. For example, my husband and I found that our Adobe accounts were breached, but we do not know when he signed up as he does not have a computer and only created an email when he got a smart phone about 4 years ago. He has no idea of how he got signed up for Adobe. To be honest, I do not remember signing up or into that service either, although I do have it on my computers and…

    • 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.

        • 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 basic correlation logic to compare newly found pastes against current breaches...

            Some sort of fuzzy matching & correlation with already posted breaches to see if the paste is just another re-post of the data from another known breach.

            One way to do this is look for emails that have the + syntax, which typically means that the user has created a somewhat unique email for a particular service, company, etc

            • 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%.

              • Summarise the breach info at the top of domain wide searches

                When you search across a domain at present, the breach name is listed next to each impacted account but it's not clear when it happened or when it was loaded into HIBP. It might not make sense to list this info next to every single breached account in the list, but a summary at the top of the page listing key attributes of each relevant breach would be handy.
