Dark Web monitoring is the process of finding personal information within parts of the internet which are difficult to access.
So, How Does it Work?
Dark Web monitoring scans through hundreds of websites, keeping track of any personal information that criminals can use to steal customers’ identity, including their personal and company email addresses, phone numbers and bank account numbers.
How Are Your Customers at Risk of Identity Theft?
The Dark Web is a hidden network, difficult to access for most. It allows individuals to hide their identity, making it the perfect platform for crimes like identity theft as it becomes difficult to track down your brought and sold customers’ information.
This can lead to all sorts of identity theft and fraud to happen depending on the information they have been able to steal. However, using Dark Web monitoring will help reduce the chances of your customers being a victim of this.
How Can You Protect Your Customers Information From the Dark Web?
Alongside using a monitoring tool, which sends customers alerts and reports if their information shows up on the dark web, there are a few more steps they can take to stay safe and reduce the chances of information falling into the wrong hands. They can:
- Use strong passwords and change them regularly.
- Browse securely.
- Safeguard your information.
