Anybody here using the https://haveibeenpwned.com/ API? What's your experience? Any good alternatives or similar services you'd care to mention?

    Didn't even know that they have an API. I've used the website previously though, but now that I've got different email addresses for everything it's become a bit difficult to keep track of all of them.

    @wedevrese hibp is an abbreviation for https://haveibeenpwned.com. 😉

    Bitwarden uses it to report breaches to its users. If you want to look int their implementation, bitwarden is open source.

    What would you need an API for?

    Spycloud works much better. I recommend you to try their service.

    @balaianu ikr, I was surprised by that one too

    I know about this service, but sadly haven't had the time to work with the API. Other services have crossed my path before, but I can't remember exactly which ones, so I'd love to revisit those too, if they'd get mentioned here. Hence my dot.

    @Condor I guess you use a pwm then? Ö

    @xewl naah, I don't really use their service anymore at all. Now that I can apply different passwords and email addresses to everything without breaking a sweat, I tend to think of server-side breakage as "eh, whatever". As long as they don't have personal data or payment information or anything like that of course.

    Regarding PWM.. that's part of any custom power supply here :3
    .. though I really should probably look into more efficient designs than the 555 astable multivibrator circuit :')

    @Condor I was referring to a "Password manager" though xD

    @xewl aah, so that's how it is.. well yeah GNU Pass is a password manager yes :) particularly tailored towards Linux (though also supported on Android and limited support for Windows is present) it allows me to encrypt my passwords with GnuPG, and it even integrates well with git. So I was able to just assign my mx1 to hold my encrypted .password-store, so that I wouldn't have to rely on external services. Great stuff!
