What is History Hunt?

Embedded content from other websites

The only elements on this site that use content from third-party websites are the secure payment gateways.

When processing payments through History Hunt, you will be temporarily forwarded onto your banking provider (either directly through that bank or via trusted third party payment gateways: Paypal/Google/Apple). They will handle the payment process along with your personal financial data. History Hunt DOES NOT and never will have access to this data.
