I think the key with haveibeenpwned is not to panic if your e-mail address comes up - some of the very large breaches mentioned in HIBP use aggregated data from a variety of other breaches but this rarely goes further than just an e-mail address and passwords/financial data isn't included. they key is to use unique passwords for each site you log into and if a breach is announced, change them.

my e-mail comes up in 5 breaches but 2 of them use aggregated data and the other 3 I either no longer have an account or purchased from them, or I have changed passwords.

and the Lord said unto John "come forth and receive eternal life". but John came fifth and won a toaster........
