I wouldn’t i don’t trust those leaks.

There are other well-known services that can do the same functionality, so best not to click on untrusted links. The sentiment and goodwill of spreading awareness about data security can be taken at face value as a good gesture though.

Avoid avoid avoid is the only effective strategy one can use for stuff like this.


I recommend everyone take a basic data security computer class. I took one a few years back as part of a summer camp program and it was life-changing.
