Hack Me FAQ & Privacy Policy

What does Hack Me do?

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

How does it actually do that?

1. When you first launch the skill, you'll be asked to link it to your Amazon account.

2. Once linked, the skill retrieves your name & email address from Amazon's Profile API.

3. Next, the skill runs your email address against Troy Hunt's HaveIBeenPwned.com API to determine if your email has ever been involved in a security breach.

4. Finally, it'll tell you where and when using Alexa's TTS engine. That's it!

What about my privacy and personal data!?

The whole point of this is to help you be more secure online. So no, we'll never intentionally share, leak, sell, or store your personal information.

And when you unlink or uninstall the Skill, we immediately lose access to your name and email.

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 gaurantees or liability — but it's open sourced under MIT, so feel free to audit the code or send me a pull request.

If you like this skill, please leave a nice review and check out my other skills. If you don't, tell me how to make it better.

You're good at this, can I hire you?

Yep. Let's talk.

That's a nice icon, where did you get it?

I got it from Icons8.com. They have tons of great icons.
