Will the new Norton check for breached sites and exposed passwords?

I was wondering if the new Norton would check all your email addresses, passwords, and sites that you log into for data breaches and exposed passwords.

There is already a website that provides that service:

I know about that. I know there is at least one password manager that will do that. I looked at the Norton password manager and did not see that available. I gave not upgraded to the new Norton yet. I know the new Norton has LifeLock. I do not know if that covered what I was wanting to know. I know it says "Alerts you to potential identity threats" Does that include breached sites and exposed passwords?

Norton/LifeLock's Dark Web Monitoring may be what you are asking about.   https://support.norton.com/sp/en/us/home/current/solutions/v127344370

Here is Norton's FAQ for this feature.   https://support.norton.com/sp/en/us/home/current/solutions/v133398194

It does not.  I talked to a salesperson it will only scan your SSN, phone number, and email on the Dark Web. If you pay more you can add more email accounts, up to 5. The breaches it tells you about may or may not have anything to do with or related to your SSN, phone number, and email. Having that information scanned on the Dark Web is nice but for full security, you need to be alerted when a company that you use your email with has a data breach. You also need to be alerted when your passwords have been exposed. I was hoping Norton would offer that so that I can just use 1 product. Hopefully, they will add that.

You note there is at least one password manager that does what you are looking for. Which one is that?

There is more than one, 1PasswordBitwarden, and some more I think. I have not checked them all out yet. I am not done looking. I was hoping Norton could do this too.
