Washington: Following revelations that around 4.6 million usernames and phone numbers from auto-destruct photo-sharing site Snapchat have been leaked online, a range of web tools could help users check if their data has been compromised.

Websites like GS Lookup-Snapchat,, have been specifically developed to help people identify if their data was breached.
According to Cnet, GS Lookup - Snapchat asks a user to enter only their username and if the account info was compromised, it will show the user`s phone number minus the last two digits on the Web page and otherwise show a "You`re Safe" message. asks a user to enter either username or phone number and shows up an alert if the information had been compromised.
