Re: Pretty Cool Features
The idea of having my passwords potentially sent out in the open and in plain text for me would definitely be a cause for concern. This is a cool idea and concept but sounds like it could have many potential cases for abuse either through a MitM attack like you mentioned, or just the fact that in order to detect if your usernames/passwords are on the dark web, this likely means that your browser would constantly be querying a remote server, or possibly even worse querying sites on the dark web directly, all the while forwarding all your passwords to these sites. I would surely hope they are at least implementing some type of hashing and just comparing the hashes of the usernames/passwords they find on the dark web, but I'd need to see more details of how they actually implemented this idea before ever considering it.
