    Does anyone know who owns or made this site: h t t p://d-fault.nl/PIDCheck.aspx
    I came across this URL from another thread. I'm just wondering if it's just a scam site meant to collect valid & legit PID keys from unsuspecting users. What does the site do with entered PID keys? The site creator could just be collecting legit keys and reusing it for monetary gain.

    The guy is a super-moderator/oldtimer here, but does he save and collect all entered PIDs? Conceivably he can do that and re-use them all for whatever purpose. Almost 300K collected valid keys can be re-sold, re-used, given away, etc. I'm just saying.

    If you have a legit key you are not going to check there,in case of problem you would speak directly with MS.so most who are checking are the free/pirated/leaked,[MAK KMS..] ones.There is even offline checker in this forum,if we have to doubt then each and everything will come in to scrutiny, who knows MS doesn't spy on my online transaction,this includes Google, mobile OS providers. to use it or not is in our hands.

    For your penance for such an absurd proposition you have to read each one of his posts and then judge .. This Forum was built around people like FreeStyler .. I guess it's school the noob day ..You better put such thoughts to rest is my advice

    I was being careful in how I worded my legitimate query, and your answer doesn't address my concern. I'm newly-registered here but that doesn't mean I'm new to reading threads here or how Internet forums go. Date of joining and number of posts doesn't legitimize anything. Thanks.

    If you are truly that concerned and this is not your first Rodeo then you can read his posts and then make your determination but to march out such a half baked idea is quite noobish to me .. Besides do you not think that all the folks here who's activation was undermined by such a thing as your conspiracy would be in arms over it .. Come on man think before you say something like that ..

    Like I said, thanks for your condescending non-sequitur. A site that stores entered PIDs can conceivably still get those keys stolen, intercepted, subjected to M$ harrassment, etc. even without questioning the motives of the site creator. Again, just saying.

    Stop the BS and own the fact that you did call into question the motives of the sites creator , period .. That fact does not point to anything but nonsense .. Take it or leave it .. Your stay here is based on your merits keep that in mind before you have some other ill thought about another member .. My advice think before you post .. We're done here

    To answer the OP : yes FreeStyler stores the keys you enter, but it's up to you to trust him or not. I chose to trust him :)

    Yes it is legit, however the author IS collecting the keys with the results at least for caching reasons (try to enter a Windows 7 key that is well-known to community and the result will appear instantly). What does he do with the keys is not our business.
    You should use cloud services with caution. If you need privacy, check my Ultimate PID Checker or any other.
