Firefox is having a good run right now, having just released its much speedier and better-looking Quantum browser. It’s now working on a new feature that security fans are bound to like: It will warn you if you’re visiting a site that has suffered a data breach. Firefox is working on the feature in collaboration with “Have I Been Pwned,” the popular site that can check your email and tell you if your credentials have been stolen by hackers.

Troy Hunt, the security expert behind Have I Been Pwned, confirmed the news, tweeting that “yes, we’re doing some awesome things with @mozilla and @haveibeenpwned.” The update is still in the early stages, but you can download it from Github, then compile and add to Firefox if you want to test it out. Bear in mind that it only works with the Developer Edition, though.

The add-on is fairly basic, for now. If you visit a site on Have I Been Pwned’s naughty list, it will throw a flag stating, “You visited hacked site ashleymadison.com.” It won’t stop you from entering, but it does give users an idea that, at some point or another, the site’s security procedures were less than optimal.
