Haveibeenpwned.com is a fantastic service that helps people find out if they’ve been involved in a data breach. HIBPwned is an R wrapper for that service.

The new version published on CRAN last night adds a delay into each call so that we can continue to use it in R.

Check out the package on CRAN for vignettes and more information on the package.
