      Hi Faisal you can check the data at ‘https://haveibeenpwned.com/’

      HaveIbeenPwned clearly mentions they do not save the user submitted data.

      If you want a services where you can check that personally we recommend using their API [ you can find more details here —> https://haveibeenpwned.com/API/v2 ] and build a service on top of their API.
