Wait a Minute, Why Is This Tool Safe?

The above tool asks you to enter your email, and then computes its SHA-1 hash and sends the result to to search our list of 2.4 million leaked email hashes. A hash is a mathematical function that is simple to perform in one direction, but difficult to reverse. Meaning, the tool will convert your email into a series of characters in such a way that it will be difficult but not impossible to re-construct your email.

Only the hash of your email will be sent to's servers, not your actual email. This hash will not be stored or logged at all. Please view source the page if you're technically inclined.
