Breach Detection is the ability to automatically check each of your email addresses (Recipients) against known data leaks / breaches which is performed approximately every 24 hours.
This is a powerful feature allowing you to alert your users should their credentials have been leaked into the public domain or dark web via a data breach.
If they appear within the breach data it is strongly advised that they change their password / enable two-factor authentication as soon as possible.
