What is the dark web?
The dark web is a collection of websites on an encrypted network carefully hidden from popular web browsers and search engines. Cybercriminals use the dark web for this reason in order to conduct and participate in illegal activities, including buying and selling personal information.
What information is available on the dark web?
A host of activities and information ends up on the dark web, with your personal information having the potential to be accessed here as well. Data breaches are the most common way personal information ends up on the dark web, which is then distributed, bought or sold by cybercriminals. This information can include email addresses, passport details and credit card numbers, which cybercriminals can use to engage in identity theft and other criminal activities.
Why get ID Security?
To avoid your personal information being used for identity theft, Trend Micro ID Security is designed to provide dark web monitoring. It will alert you if any of your leaked personal information is being maliciously sold or distributed by cybercriminals on the dark web.
How does ID Security work?
ID Security works 24/7 to monitor your personal information on the dark web. If we find your online accounts or personal information has leaked, we will alert you immediately so you can take corrective action.
ID Security scours the dark web for sensitive personal information like your bank account number, driver’s license number, tax number and passport information and then immediately alerts you if it finds them.
Find out if someone has stolen your credit card number and put it on the dark web.
See if the email address you use for online accounts has appeared on the dark web due to a data leak. If it finds your address, the app shows exactly which accounts suffered the breach so you immediately know which passwords to change.
You should not only use unique passwords for all of your accounts but also choose passwords that nobody else has ever used. ID Security can see if you have used a password currently in circulation on the dark web.
