I have come across both https://haveibeenpwned.com/ and https://www.leakedsource.com/ and considering signing up to I initially thought and still do think leakedsource is a trustworthy site but I found conflicting info when searching the web and so I am asking here. I have seen some news articles on here where the Administrator has quoted that leakedsource and by that I think they must be legitimate and trustworthy. However I thought I would just ask anyway for extra reassurance.

 

Thanks.

What makes you choose leakedsource over haveibeenpwned?

I was considering both in case one missed something the other didn't.

OK, I understand now.

 

Don't know about leakedsource, but you can trust haveIbeenpwned, the guy who maintains it is a Microsoft MVP too.
