Website making Irish phone number and address available

    Hi,

    Raising awareness of another tool you might need to protect yourself against, that seems to contain leaked address and phone numbers, might be of use to people in the security space to be aware of it.

    https://www.locatefamily.com/index.html

    My full address and an old phone number are in there and I can see some of my neighbours numbers in there too and they appear correct.

    If you spot your details in there it might make it easier for someone to know the number of a device you use for 2 factor auth or a street address that might be used to confirm identity for online banking etc

    The takedown policy on the site seems to require you to give them an email address, which is a little bit sketchy in itself. Just highlighting it as there appears to be a bunch of details of Irish addresses / numbers in there, it may have came from a recent leak.
