How Firefox notifies about website breaches

Firefox checks the date of a known website breach against the date you saved a password for that website. If the website was breached after you saved your password, you’ll see this alert. The database of breached websites is provided by Have I been Pwned.

Firefox will also check to see if you’ve reused any of these potentially vulnerable passwords with other logins you’ve saved to Firefox. The browser does this by creating an encrypted list of your breached passwords, then checking it against all saved passwords. Firefox does not keep logs of your plaintext passwords or know them.


Note: Firefox never sends your logins or passwords to third-party services or servers. It keeps all data regarding logins and breaches anonymous.

  2. Select the Privacy & Security panel and go to the Logins and Passwords section.
