The reason behind this extension's creation is that threat actor groups are using username and password combos from old leaks to launch credential stuffing attacks, attempting to gain access to other online accounts where users have reused their old username and password combos. The extension enables you to find out which accounts have been compromised and prompts you to change unsafe passwords.

It's also looking to improve the way it works over time; hopefully it'll be baked into a future version of the browser so more users can take the necessary steps to protect their accounts. Even if the user chooses a strong password, it's useless if it is used for all accounts.

In the unfortunate occasion of account compromise, setting up a recovery email or mobile device will help online services inform its subscribers of possible suspicious activity.
