MILLIONS of people across the globe have had their private details stolen by hackers.
But worried users of LinkedIn, which admitted this week criminal gangs had stolen the password and email combinations for 164 million of its customers, can visit www.haveibeenpwned.com to check whether they are at risk.
By simply entering your email, the site will tell you if it has appeared on any of the black markets that make up the ‘dark web’ — where hackers sell private details to criminal gangs.
These gangs can then use the information to access websites, from your online bank account to your medical history.
Victims of these hacks are then at risk of losing money — or even their online identity.
The website tracks the 164 million people who were targeted in the 2012 digital attack on LinkedIn, as well the 152 million Adobe users, 30 million Ashley Madison users and countless others victim of different breached websites.
The results of the search will let you know where you were hacked and what information the hackers have: from passwords, email addresses and even the helpful password hints many websites require when setting up an account.
You can also set up an alert on the website which will let you know if your details are ever hacked in the future.
