Firefox Monitor is nothing like the identity theft protection services. It simply looks for known breaches to see if your email has been listed there.

Many identity theft services (it will vary depending on the service) go deeper. Many will monitor your financial transactions for fraudulent activity or monitor who accesses your account(s).

Firefox Monitor isn't an alternative to that kind of service.
