Worried about whether your phone number was included in the leak of the user data for 4.5 million Snapchat users?

If you started your account in New Zealand, you're probably safe. According to a Reddit user who has sifted through the data, all of the phone numbers are in the United States and Canada. 

But if you want to be sure, there are two tools available to help you check, Snapcheck.org and GS Lookup - Snapchat. By entering your phone number or Snapchat username on either site, you can tell if it's in the leaked database.

If your account was compromise, don't panic. But you might want to request a new phone number.
