Mozilla has finally launched Firefox Monitor, a website that connects to the TroyHun’s Have I Been Pwned? (HIBP), one of the biggest breach notification databases which can be used to check in an email address for known breaches or also can be used to register for a breach notification so that if the address is detected in the future breaches are logged by HIBP.

Earlier this year, Mozilla announced Firefox Monitor, a service that tells you if your online accounts were hacked in a recent data breach. All you have to give it is your email address and it’ll use the Have I Been Pwned database to show you if you need to worry and what data was compromised. Mozilla is taking this a step further by also letting you sign up for alerts for when your accounts appear in any (known) breaches in the future.
