Keep Your Data Secure With Mozilla’s Newest Tools

Keep Your Data Secure With Mozilla’s Newest Tools

Mozilla has been on a tear for data security and privacy lately, and we applaud that. Keeping your information safe from the prying eyes (and hacks) of others should be at the top of your mind every time you sign up for a new service or mess around on the web. And it’s refreshing to see good news about browsers and new security initiatives, unlike other companies’ efforts lately.

Even though the brand-new “Firefox Monitor” tool Mozilla released yesterday is just a skin of “Have I Been Pwned,” that’s fine. Both services are an excellent way to figure out whether any of your online accounts have been compromised: You type in your email address, and you get a list of associated security breaches (and what data was compromised).

It’s great to see Have I Been Pwned get more mainstream recognition, as plenty of people might be familiar with Firefox, but unaware of Have I Been Pwned’s big security database. And whether you’re a newbie or you’ve previously looked yourself up, it’s worth hitting up the Firefox Monitor (or Have I been Pwned, we suppose) and typing in your email addresses to check for new ways your data has been leaked around the web.

More importantly, Mozilla’s Firefox Monitor joins a pretty packed family of software and services designed to keep your data secure and your online privacy intact. Mozilla doesn’t have a perfect score on this front, thanks to that one time it decided to insert weird messages into your browser as part of a cross-promotion for the Mr. Robot show, but its many offerings are worth checking out:
