Most domain searches are free. Once a domain has more than 10 breached email addresses on it, searching the domain requires a subscription. There are several ways to either reduce or entirely remove the need to have a subscription:
- You can add domains to your domain search dashboard and receive an email notification when they're impacted by a breach without needing a subscription.
- Many people with personal domains use a catch-all with unique aliases per service they use; if the "Acme Corp" service is breached and a notification is sent to you, use the free public email address search on the front page to see if firstname.lastname@example.org (or equivalent) has appeared in a breach.
- HIBP subscriptions can be taken out monthly and cancelled at any time. If the appearance of your domain in a breach is infrequent, you can take out a one month subscription then immediately cancel it after performing the search (the subscription will remain active until the entire month period has elapsed).
