Firefox is looking out for you. Mozilla’s web browser will soon warn users if the website they’re viewing was once a victim of hacking,according to Engadget.
Mozilla is reportedly building the new feature in conjunction with Have I Been Pwned, a site that helps consumers determine if their data has been breached, or if their credentials were stolen. Troy Hunt, founder of Have I Been Pwned, tweeted Wednesday, “Yes, we’re doing some awesome things with @mozilla and @haveibeenpwned,” adding, “surprised at how much positive feedback this is garnering so quickly.”
Firefox will offer a warning, but it won’t prevent users from actually entering the site. The feature is currently in its early stages, but an add-on prototype is reportedly available for download during a testing period.
