In the wake of the Ashley Madison data leak, couples have been checking to see if their partners were ever on the website. Given that 32 million individuals and their pertinent information were leaked in the huge data dump, people checked their partner’s laptops, emails, and phones to check for correspondence between their partner and another person.
Sites that will help spouses check
As of this writing, there were supposedly three websites that would help spouses check if their husbands or wives were cheating on them through the website. The websites, namely haveibeenpwned.com, ashleymadisonleakeddata.com and ashleymadisonleaked.com, were designed to help spouses check for their partner’s email in the site’s database. Ashleymadisonleaked.com, as of this writing, has been taken down for unknown reasons while Ashleymadisonleakeddata.com has been shut down because of a takedown notice from Avid Dating Life Media Incorporated, the company behind Ashley Madison.
One website, haveibeenpwned.com, still functions the way it’s supposed to. All you really need to do is to enter your spouse’s username or email address in the given text field below and it will notify you if the email has been breached. See screenshot below.
If ever the email was used in Ashley Madison, it would return this result. Take note that the emails that are considered breached are those that have been used to sign up for an Ashley Madison account and those that have been verified.
However, if the email was not breached, then this result would show. This means the email was never used to sign up for an Ashley Madison account.
For spouses who like to take the investigation further, they can download the data dump found in many a torrent site. As of this writing, there is roughly 30GB of information posted by the hackers from nearly 45 million individuals on the site, including credit card information, email correspondence, and even the preferences and fantasies of the registered member.
