Client for HIBP passwords api using K-Anonymity method

Project description

# pywnedPasswords

This script uses the pwnedpasswords.com v2 api to check your password in a secure way (using the [K-anonymity](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K-anonymity) method)

The full Hash is never transmitted over the wire, only the first 5 characters. The comparison happens offline.

Special thanks to Troy Hunt ([@troyhunt](https://twitter.com/troyhunt)) for making this script possible.

## Usage

` bash python pwnedcheck.py `

Insert your password when asked.

the output will either be:

` Password to check: Found your password 47205 times. `

or in case your password is not secure

` Password to check: Your password did not appear in PwnedPasswords yet. `
