  1. Don't use Gravitar

    On a website that helps people mitigate the impact of losing private data you prevent use of avatars without signing up to an arbitrary third party with whom users may have no previous relationship and certainly no reason to trust. This feels strangely at odds with the core ethos of your website.

  2. Provide Delta files between versions of the Password DB for offline mirror updates

    for offline mirrors it is important to be able to stay up to date - dropping the index and whole db only to reimport all 550M entries is a long time - for local offline copies the # of breaches may not be important but the new hashes are - can you provide delta files of the newly added SHA1s only for easier updates?

    Love using the service btw!

    would also keep your bandwith lower for people only needing the new stuff by downloading smaller files

  3. Question: Does HIBP check user ids as well as email address?

    Some websites use userids instead of email addresses. Are userids checked the same as email addresses?

  5. Normalize all searches to lower case

    I sometimes capitalize portions of my email address.
    After checking the same email address twice - one time all lower case and another using some upper case - I got different results!

  7. Version Pwned Password API

    Can you version the "Pwned Passwords" API v2 to reduce the confusion with https://haveibeenpwned.com/API/v3#APIVersion please?

    Can the "Pwned Passwords" API endpoint also specify which release of https://haveibeenpwned.com/Passwords is used within its URL?

    At this stage there’s no plan to version the Pwned Passwords API an it’ll continue to run independently to the APIs for searching breaches.

    See the “last-modified” response header on the API if you’re looking to identify when the data is current as of.

  8. Domain Search Email Validation Not Working

    I'm not receiving emails while attempting to validate my ownership of a domain. We're using Office 365 and the email doesn't appear to be getting caught by the spam or phishing filters.

  11. Fix your SMTP server records in DNS (reverse lookup not working).

    Fix your SMTP server: the SMTP server you are using to verify domains does not have a reverse lookup address, so emails are either rejected or marked as spam by any server that is well configured.

  13. Insert Breach's "Permalink"

    Can you please insert the breach's "Permalink" returned by the API?

    For example, include "Permalink" : "https://haveibeenpwned.com/PwnedWebsites#Adobe" similar to the existing key/value pair of "LogoPath".

  14. consider social security numbers?

    What potential is there to provide data on SSN that have been exposed in a breach? This seems much more borderline dangerous, but curious about of you've given any thought and the problems / possibilities you see.

  15. small 'best of' download files instead of full 10 gb...

    in one of the recent blogs from you or cloudflare, it is talked that basically it would be best to deny all passwords with a count > 100 and warn on password > 20. would it be possible to create download files just for these (i think) like 10 mil records (all > 20)? that would make it easier to create a local repository database with a workable download size and working count. ... and ignoring the rare passwords which make up the largest bucket of your collection.

    You can easily do this yourself by pulling down the entire data set then just extracting all records within the threshold you’ve chosen. I don’t want to publish multiple versions of the same data at different thresholds, this is a very subjective decision and it can easily be extracted from the existing data,

  16. Allow User Submissions

    Please allow users to submit pwnd passwords.

    I just had Google notify me that someone tried to log in with my password from Java Indonesia, yet this password is not in the pwnd password list.

  18. I dont understand what to do

    Everyone is very excited about this site. But honestly I am confused. I've received a message about my primary email address many times. But there's absolutely no action I can take based on that. Yes, good password hygene, yes, dont reuse passwords. But that's generic advice that I get without needing to be notified. What is the increment of information I get by receiving your email? I think that there is none. Can you help me understand your value?

  19. Add searching by username

    If leaks contain usernames and passwords, wouldn't it be important to be able to find out if one of your usernames has been compromised? Or do emails always accompany the passwords?

    Assuming you mean usernames that are user-chosen strings as opposed to email addresses, this functionality existed in HIBP for a while but was later deprecated. Usernames in this form are not uniquely identifiable, often don’t exist at all (email addresses are used instead) and most importantly, can’t easily be parsed out of a large dump with a regex like email addresses can be. So in summary, low value and high effort.

  20. don't log data that has been input via the website

    a few days after I tested several of my passwords, I started receiving emails from different websites, that someone was trying to log into my accounts. and these are accounts that I haven't used for several years...

    your pawny website is a a phishing scam and people should never ever use it!!!
