How do exposed passwords/data breach reports work?

It may sound like a dumb question, but what exactly happens when you run the reports?

Do the results just appear on the screen or are they emailed to you?

I am asking this because on LastPass, at least when I used it some time ago, data breach reports were emailed not to the vault’s email address, but to the breached email addresses that were on the vault.

So if I had someone else’s login saved on my vault, they would suddenly receive this weird email about a report they did not request saying that their email was found on a data breach.

Thanks in advance!

Bitwarden will not send an email, you can only access the reports from the web vault.

If you want to receive emails when your info is in a breach, use Firefox Monitor. You only need to provide your email address.
