I signed up for this (free) site a while ago and got my first data breach notification through it (patreon.) I also got an email form Patreon the same day.

I like the service though. Independent verification of the problem. And more of a neutral perspective than the company.

I like how is donation page talks about beer and other fun things.

It's security researcher Troy Hunt according to arstechnica. They also tell how the patreon hack was done. Lots of interesting questions.
