What does Hack Me do?

Hack Me is an Alexa Skill that checks if your email address has been involved in a recent internet security breach.

Can I try it out right now?

Yes!

How do you actually do that?

When you first invoke the skill, you'll be asked to link it to your Amazon account. This enables us to request your name and email address from Amazon. Then we use Troy Hunt's HaveIBeenPwned.com API to determine if your email has ever been involved in a security breach. Finally, we tell you where and when using Alexa's TTS engine. That's it.

What about my privacy and data?

The whole point of this is security. So no, we'll never intentionally share, leak, sell, or store your personal information. And if you unlink or uninstall the Skill, we'll immediately lose access to your Amazon account information.

What are your ToS?

Look, I'm not a lawyer. I'm just a guy who likes to write code. This software and service are provided without any guarantees or anything — but I'm open sourcing it under MIT, so feel free to audit the code or send me a pull request.
