I just signed up for Firefox Monitor. Most of the accounts it says were breached are ones I recognize, and I have changed my passwords. However, it also says there were data breaches affecting two sites I do not have an account with at all (Whitepages and Verifications.io). What do I do about those, since I haven't got an account (I don't even know what Verifications.io is), so I don't have a password to change.

I have read the article posted as a solution but it is no solution for my problem. Should I not be worried about this problem?

So, maybe all kinds of personal information has been leaked in all kinds of ways. Nice to know it did--I think--include my passwords but what all did it include? But the main concern is, just being told it was breached doesn't tell me what to do except change my passwords. But to what? I don't know who or how these people even got my information to breach. I am not aware of Verifications.io, don't know if they're some kind of behind-the-scenes entity my data passes through without my knowing it but if that's the case, how can I tell where my vulnerability is?
