Project Description


Python package to interact with


$ pip install PwnedCheck


For a complete overview of the haveibeenpwned API please see

All checks are done through the check method. This will check a single email address against the haveibeenpwned API and return a list of sites that the email address has been found on.

If the email address is not found in any of the data leaks, it will return an empty list ([]).

If the email address is invalid (not properly formatted), PwnedCheck will throw an InvalidEmail exception.

import pwnedcheck

print pwnedcheck.check(“”)

You can also just pass a username into the check method. The API will search this username against the Snapchat leak.
