There exist millions of websites on the web and we may visit a few of them on a nearly daily basis as per our needs. Yet there are many more websites that may stir your interest or come to your aid, but you may have never heard about them.

Cost of Living Comparison
The Cost of Living Comparison by NUMBEO helps you to compare the cost of living between two cities. If you are planning to move to another city, type the name of the city and your current city. You will know the differences in grocery prices, rent prices, restaurant prices and so on. This site will help you decide whether it is feasible to move to another city that you have in mind.

Have I Been Pwned?
Have I Been Pwned? (HIBP) is a website which lets you know if your user names and email addresses have been compromised by data breaches. A ‘breach’ happens when a hacker illegally obtains data from a vulnerable system usually by exploiting a weakness in the software. This data is made publicly available which helps HIBP to allow users to search for their own information by entering their username or email address. Users can also sign up to be notified if their email address appears in future dumps.
Thus, if you realize that you are ‘pwned’, then you should change the passwords on compromised accounts. You may use this site at least once a year as part of a security and privacy check-up.

It is a powerful tool to generate random names and information such as birthday, address, credit card, email address, hobbies and much more. This is a way you can stop sharing private details online.
Beware – giving fake details for legally binding accounts will constitute a fraud.
