Dark Web Scan
You are browsing the web, doing the usual—using social media, reading the news, checking your bank statements, chatting with friends. But one company somewhere has had a massive data leak, completely unbeknow to you.
This means your password, username, and possibly sensitive personal information has been uploaded to a hidden sublayer of the internet—the deep web. We can help you figure out if your data has been breached, help you deal with the consequences and avoid this in the future.
How does it happen?
The most frequent reason for your personal information ending up on the dark web is third party leaks. One of the most notorious one being the LinkedIn leak back in 2012, when hackers got access to over 6.5 million user accounts. Now, you might be thinking—the criminals might have gotten access to my name, password and email address, but that doesn’t give them access to the ACTUALLY important stuff.
Let us ask you this—do you sometimes use the same password in different variants? Let’s say you use the password “Charlie86” for your email after your dog and your birth year, since it is pretty easy to remember. Are you guilty of changing up your password slightly according to the rules a website puts on you? So maybe you use “charlie86!” or “Charlie860a!”?
According to the Center of Internet Security, 31% to 55% of people reuse the same password on multiple sites, and most of those people slightly edit the password as needed.
That is a dangerous habit that can end up hurting you, since hackers know this and they try to “brute force” their way through passwords by adding the most common edits (such as adding an exclamation point or a number) to your passwords.

How do we help you?
We will run a scan on the information you provide us and end up with a report with all the data that is found on you on the dark web. Depending on what we find, we will advise you on how to proceed.
Since there is practically no way to just remove your data from the dark web and data gets shared within seconds, the best way to fight against identity or data theft is to change your passwords to something completely new ASAP.
