That’s a pretty big catch: Although 533 million Facebook accounts were included in the breach, only 2.5 million of those included emails in the stolen data. So you’ve got less than a half-percent chance of showing up on that website, even though you’ve got about a 20% chance of being hacked if you’ve got a Facebook account.
«The primary value of the data is the association of phone numbers to identities; whilst each record included phone, only 2.5 million contained an email address,» Hunt’s website said.
Although this data is from 2019, it could still be of value to hackers and cyber criminals like those who engage in identify theft.
