We all think the internet is a safe place: We use passwords to turn on our computers, passwords to connect to our inbox, or maybe even a master password tool such as Enpass or LastPass so that we don’t forget our many, many passwords.

From time to time, security scandals break out and only then do users realize how vulnerable they are to threats. A single security measure, such as setting up a password, is never enough. In order to enhance your security level, you should always back up your security tools. An example of such a tool is Hacked?, a Windows 10 app that monitors and detects breaches in your email account.

If your email account is not secure, Hacked? alerts you immediately so that you can change your password immediately. This app should be a mandatory tool especially for businesses as they are the primary target for hackers.

Hacked? is very easy to use: You simply enter the email address you want to have monitored and that’s it. You’ll immediately receive notifications if breaches are detected.  You can enter as many email addresses as you want — the app will monitor them all in the background.

The app uses the Troy Hunt’s massive haveibeenpwned database of breaches which is updated regularly. No threat can escape the all-seeing eye of Hacked?. Another major advantage is the app’s guarantee that it will never share your email addresses with anyone outside of the haveibeenpwned API for marketing or any other purposes.

Hacked? supports three operating systems: Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile, and Windows Holographic. The user interface is available in English only, but more languages could be added in the future taking into account this is only the first version of the app.

You can download Hacked? from the Microsoft Store for free.
