New tool to automatically remove your personal information from data broker sites

Introducing Mozilla Monitor Plus – “Today, Mozilla Monitor (previously called Firefox Monitor), a free service that notifies you when your email has been part of a breach, announced its new paid subscription service offering: automatic data removal and continuous monitoring of your exposed personal information…“When we launched Monitor, our goal was to help people discover where their personal info may have been exposed. Now, with Monitor Plus, we’ll help people take back their exposed data from data broker sites that are trying to sell it,” said Tony Amaral-Cinotto, Product Manager of Mozilla Monitor at Mozilla. “Our long-standing commitment to put people’s needs first and our easy step-by-step process makes Monitor Plus unique. Additionally, we combine breach alerts and data broker removal to offer an all-in-one protection tool and make it easier for people to feel and be safe online…If you’re the type who wants to set it and forget it, because you know the work is happening behind the scenes, then we can automatically and continuously request to remove your personal information with an annual paid subscription of $8.99 per month ($107.88 a year). On your behalf, Mozilla Monitor will start with data removal requests, then scan every month to make sure your personal information stays off data broker sites. Monitor Plus will let you know once your personal information has been removed from more than 190+ data broker sites, twice the number of other competitors…” [I have no affiliation with Mozilla nor these services.]
