@Priest72 those people have UBO Team as tags next to their usernames so reddit users understand their expertise -- reddit is the official place to get UBO support. If you hang out on the GitHub project you'll quickly recognize gwarser & uBlock-user as contributors there.
@Ayespy lol woops I wasn't meaning to insinuate you were a dev 😉
but yeah, that quote is absolutely from a dev
the upvote was simply for the info note, and thanks again for that 🙂
I'm just a hacker (the good type, just for knowledge) in that I like to dig deep into what I like if there's a problem that could be fixed or improved upon for either security or functionality
I'm also a python programmer, and have done a few hacky things like truly private attributes
(soon to be rewritten in C to knock off the unfixable exploits)
don't ask me to work on Vivaldi though
I've already drowned in my own ocean of projects, and don't have the ability to to keep up with adding yet another tanker of code to it... lol
if I'm gonna work on a secure browser, I may as well just build my own 😛
I mean heck, I'm already working on abolishing TCP/IP with my own network protocol... lol
(think of Tor+HIPS without exit nodes)

I see there may be a misunderstanding here. Unlike google's solution, It's not a program, it's literally just a text file containing the hashes of leaked passwords.
If you check your password (hash) and it is in the text file, your password has been leaked somewhere. No phoning home to any services or running exes required.
This is what a section of the file looks like:
Basically, it means that 11 people have used a leaked password with that hash value, so it would not be recommended for use as it is no longer unique and secure.
I tried your page with one of my passwords
I use for passwords other than 1234
