We all get spam and unwanted emails from time to time. Some of us have even been a victim of online
fraud or identity theft. Most of the
time, the first key piece of information used by fraudsters in order to gain
access to your personal data is your email address.
In a world that is so connected, it is easy for us to lose track of where we’ve willingly or unwillingly exposed our email to others.
Our search platform helps you to locate where your email address is openly exposed across the internet. We hope that by showing you where your email address is exposed, we can encourage users to remove their email address from the internet, thus better protecting their future self.
When you search for your email via the sniff.email platform, we look at the content of billions of web pages to see if any of them contain your data. We look for both exact and likely matches.
In this scenario we would have found a webpage which contains your full email address, open for everyone to see. It could be a response to a post on social media, a page set up without your knowledge, a business page set up where you haven’t used a masking technique. If it’s out there, we aim to find it for you.
In this situation we’ll break your email down, extracting your name and domain name. We run this as a separate search to identify any posts or links that likely refer to you, but don’t necessarily contain your direct email. This is experimental technology that we are evolving with every search and as such, some entries can be omitted or are irrelevant.
We believe that you should know who holds your email, or information about you. Leaving your personal data exposed on the internet will increase the chances of identity theft, spam or being a victim of online fraud.
You’ll be given the option to see the information that we
find. We encourage you to review each
link and decide how you would like to proceed.
We can guide you through removing your information or using techniques to reduce the likelihood of being spammed or becoming a victim of digital scams, spam or fraud.
Yes, and we encourage you to do this. Google and other search engines can be a
great place to start although you should still
use sniff.email, as unlike any other service we
simultaneously search 20+ search engines and social media sites. We use
proprietary software solutions specific to finding emails and exposed personal
data online, we then provide one neatly formatted report outlining all search results regardless of platform.
We passionately believe that your email address should be
protected, just like your bank details, or any other personal information. We've
taken the time to build this software, invest in technology to help people
protect their emails, and provide support to all of our customers, all of which
costs time and money. It's only fair we are paid for the great work that we do,
don’t you agree? You will be provided with the first search result for
free. After that, there is a one-off
charge of £9.99 for a full report.
We work on the concept that a dog is a Wo/man’s best friend. They are also great at retrieving things. Here at sniff.email we love to retrieve your personal data. For every order placed we donate 10% to animal charities (not just for dogs) to help protect them. So, each time you search, you can help to save animal lives – we’re proud of this and think it’s a pretty cool way to run a business!
We are working around the clock to improve our service
offering. Our passion is to help you
protect your digital data. It’s your
email address, why should someone else have it and abuse it. You wouldn’t accept someone having your bank
details, birth certificate, mobile/cell number etc… so why should it be any
different for your email? We hope that you gain valuable insight from our
service. If you would like to share your
experience or reach out to us with any feedback, please contact us here.
