Mozilla announced it has launched its Firefox Monitor tool designed to notify internet users if their email address has been compromised in a data breach. Mozilla partnered with Security Researcher Troy Hunt and his site, Have I Been Pwned, in the creation of the tool. Users first enter their email address into Firefox Monitor to see if their email address has been previously impacted by a data breach. After the initial scan, users can sign up for the service to be notified about any future incidents involving their email address. “If you’re wondering about how we’re handling your email address, rest assured we will protect your email address when it’s scanned,” Mozilla Vice President of Firefox Product Nick Nguyen said in a blog post.
