API keys

This project uses hunter.io to get information from company emails,the first couple "company email" searches dont require a key,if you have an interest in company emails i recommend that you sign up for an account on hunter.io.

Tips

  • You get 200 email validations/day,use them wisely!
  • When using the -a option,avoid using small words(ex:j,3,66),the shorter the words are the bigger the email list is and therefore more validations are needed
  • when adding an email pattern make sure the service providing the pattern displays it with the right size(facebook,twitter,instagram do...others might not)
  • I dont recommend using with Tor as haveibeenpwnd.com,hunter.io and google wont function properly
