Over 500 Million Facebook Accounts Compromised

Originally published at: Over 500 Million Facebook Accounts Compromised - TidBITS

A 2019 data breach exposed the personal information of 533 million Facebook users. Here are a couple of tools you can use to see if you’ve been compromised.

Oh no! Another leak. Let’s see if my Facebook information was leaked:

Gawker… No.
Adobe… No.
Spambot… What? No, not Facebook.
Dropbox… No.
MongoDB… No.
Old BB I haven’t posted to in decades… No.

Nope, it looks like my email is safe! It wasn’t exposed by Facebook!

Have I Been Pwned? now lets you also search with your phone number to see if it’s in the Facebook breach (which apparently has far more phone numbers than email addresses).

There’s over 500M phone numbers but only a few million email addresses so >99% of people were getting a “miss” when they should have gotten a “hit”.
