Googled my Email address….

I googled my Email address and found 3 random password crack sites with my old passwords listed as early as December 2020.
For various applications like Netflix, Hulu,

I’m disappointed in myself because I use 2 factor authentication and I change passwords every 6 months.

What am I doing wrong that caused my professional email to be listed on deep sites like these?

2fa will protect logins from stolen credentials, but does nothing to secure your password held with a 3rd party, like Netflix, Spotify. If a data breach has occurred, then in many cases your email is leaked, sometimes the actual password too – depending on how securely the password was stored by the 3rd party. Often, if unique passwords aren’t kept, a 3rd party with credentials stored and poor security is hacked – and that password and email combination are tried on more popular 3rd party services.
