Say Goodbye to Data Breaches Forever: Mozilla’s Revolutionary Monitor Plus Service Has You Covered!

Share

  • Mozilla has introduced Monitor Plus, a subscription service to help users remove personal info from data broker websites.
  • Monitor Plus automates the process of scanning and removal, making it easier for users compared to manual opt-out procedures.
  • Users can choose between a paid subscription for automated removals or a free one-time scan option, with both options providing breach alerts and tools for protection.

Mozilla has launched a new subscription service today to help people find and erase their personal info from websites that sell it. This includes things like phone numbers, emails, and addresses, which these websites often sell for money. The service is called Monitor Plus and it’s part of Mozilla Monitor, which used to be called Firefox Monitor. Originally, it just told you if your email was in a data breach. Cybersecurity is a vital aspect for many users as there are many phishing scams.

Simplify the Process with Monitor Plus

Now, Monitor Plus lets the 10 million people who already use Mozilla Monitor check if their personal info has been leaked. Then, it gives them tools to make that info private again. Normally, it’s really hard to get your info off these websites. You have to fill out forms or contact the websites, and it’s confusing.

Automated Removals for Easy Protection

Monitor makes it easier by searching 190 websites that sell personal info. If it finds your info on any of them, it asks them to take it down for you. This can take a day or a month. Monitor Plus costs $13.99 per month, but if you pay for a whole year at once, it’s $107.88 ($8.99 per month).

One-Time Scan Option for Free Users

If you don’t want to pay, you can still do a one-time scan for free, but you have to remove your info yourself. This might convince you to pay for Monitor Plus, since it does it automatically. Both free and paid users still get alerts about data breaches and tools to fix them.

Tony Amaral-Cinotto’s Insight

Tony Amaral-Cinotto, who works at Mozilla, says Monitor Plus helps people get their info back from websites trying to sell it. He says they’ve always wanted to help people find where their info is exposed, and now they want to help them fix it too. He says Monitor Plus is easy to use and combines alerts and info removal to keep people safe online.

Easy Steps for Scanning

To do a scan, you give Mozilla your name, where you live, your birthday, and your email. They use this info to look for your personal info online. They say 233 million people had their info leaked in 2023, so tools like this are really important.

Availability

Monitor Plus is currently available in the U.S. and will be soon accessible in other countries.
