Starting in Firefox 70, Mozilla aims to have the browser report when any of your saved logins were found in data breaches. This will be done through their partnership with the Have I Been Pwned data breach site.

Mozilla is slowly integrating their independent Firefox Monitor service and the new Firefox Lockwise password manager directly into Firefox. Mozilla is also considering premium services based around these features in the future.

As part of this integration, Firefox will scan the saved login names and passwords and see if they were exposed in a data breach listed on Have I been Pwned. If one is found, Firefox will alert the user and prompt them to change their password.

This new feature will only work, though, for data breaches that exposed passwords and when the password was saved prior to an associated data breach.

When a saved login is detected as being part of a breach, Mozilla will add an alert icon
alert
next to the account profile in Firefox Lockwise as shown in a mockup from Mozilla below. Clicking on the saved login will open its subpanel that displays an alert that the "Passwords were leaked or stolen" as part of a data breach.
