What is breach data?

A data breach is the intentional or unintentional release of secure or private/confidential information to an untrusted environment. Other terms for this phenomenon include unintentional information disclosure, data leak, information leakage and also data spill.

What happens if my data gets breached?

Like most people you probably have an account on some website out there. If the database of this website gets breached, then that means anything you provided to that website will most likely be avaliable to the public like usernames, passwords, date of birth and other personal information.

How can I tell if my account is breached?

When you sign up with websites, usually you provide something like your email or phone number. So the way for you to check if  your information is leaked, would be by looking them up on one of the following websites:
