Hacked IP gathers public threat intelligence (lists of IP addresses which are potentially malicious) from a variety of open source threat sources (example). We add new threat feeds as they become avaliable and refresh data daily. When you search for an IP address, we inform you if the IP address appears on one of these lists.

How does HackedIP know my IP address?
Internet communications require IP addresses. When you visit a website, your IP address is presented to the website you visit so that your comptuer can establish a connection with the website and to exchange data. HackedIP reads your IP address and pre-populates the lookup field.
