How to check if your info is part of the Facebook 500M+ data leak April 2021

In the biggest April Fools joke, Facebook hackers re-released the personal information for 500M+ Facebook users on a hacking forum, including mobile numbers, name, gender, location, relationship status, occupation, date of birth, and email addresses.

This data was originally sold in private sales after being collected in 2019 using a bug in the 'Add Friend' feature on Facebook. Facebook had closed this vulnerability soon after it was discovered, but threat actors continued to circulate the data until it was finally released practically for free ($2.19) yesterday.

You can check you account with Have I Been Pwned: Check if your email has been compromised in a data breach ( service which has been updated this hacked info.
