Firefox Monitor show endless breeches with sites I never visit. Many are gaming sites.

Posted

I found a couple of sites that were hacked where I no longer have an account, but the vast majority (maybe 50-60) were sites I have never visited. Many looked like game sites.

Firefox Monitor provides a variety of data breaches, some of them will be sites you never visit, but are instead data warehouses, which suck up information from around the web, and use that data to sell your information to advertisers. When they are breached, it's important to know which of your accounts are public, and potentially more vulnerable
