Credential Exposure Removal Resources


We all have credential exposure. Within thousands of database breaches, our email addresses, usernames, passwords, and other sensitive details are being shared across the internet. This has created business opportunities for online services which sell access to our private details. Numerous websites allow anyone to search your email address and see the breach in which it was associated, often along with a partial password. For a few bucks, many sites will show anyone the full password. Let's do something about that. The following steps allow you to remove your email address and exposed credentials from these services.
