Firefox Monitor for Data Breaches is a feature offered by Mozilla's Firefox browser that helps users check if their email addresses have been compromised in known data breaches. It allows you to stay informed and take necessary steps to secure your online accounts.

To use Firefox Monitor, follow these steps:

  1. Open Firefox browser and navigate to the Firefox Monitor website (https://monitor.firefox.com/).
  2. On the website, enter your email address in the search box.
  3. Click on the "Search" button.
  4. If your email address has been found in any data breaches, you will receive a notification stating the number of affected breaches.
  5. You can then click on the "See details" button to get information about the breaches where your email appeared.
  6. Firefox Monitor also provides recommendations on how you can take action, such as changing passwords and enabling two-factor authentication on affected accounts.
  7. To proactively monitor your email address, you can sign up for a Firefox Account and enable the "Breach Alerts" feature. This will notify you if your email is found in any future breaches.

Using Firefox Monitor helps you stay vigilant about your online security by providing insights into data breaches and enabling you to take appropriate measures to protect your accounts.
