Dark Web Monitoring
Stop worrying about data breaches. LastPass monitors your accounts and sends an alert if your information is compromised.
What is Dark Web Monitoring?
LastPass monitors your email addresses continuously within a database of breached credentials and immediately alerts you via email if they have been compromised. Put your mind at ease knowing LastPass is protecting you - even if you aren't logged in.
Turn on monitoring for the email addresses you want us to keep an eye on.
Get an email from LastPass any time a monitored address is detected in the database of breached credentials.
Take action to protect any account compromised in a breach. Change your password to ensure peace of mind.
Is my information on the dark web?
The dark web (or deep web) is unseen part of the Internet that is not findable by search engines and allows users to remain anonymous. Much, but not all of the dark web is used for criminal activity.
If you store any personal information online, it’s possible it has made its way to the dark web. Hackers and identity thieves launch cyber-attacks and phishing scams to try to access your sensitive information. You’ve probably heard about breaches of big companies on the news. When these breaches occur, the hackers gain access to your information and try to resell it on the dark web.
Think about the websites or companies that store your personal information like:
- Social media
- Shopping websites
- Medical accounts
- Forums, chat rooms, and webinars
- Peer to peer networks
- Email accounts
If these accounts were breached, hackers could have access to your valuable data and potentially steal your identity.
What types of personal information is at risk on the dark web?
Any information you store online could potentially be stolen. LastPass dark web monitoring checks your email addresses against a database of breached credentials to see if they have been involved in any breaches. If the dark web scan shows that an account has been compromised, you are sent an alert that tells you what account needs attention. You are then able to change your password for that account and hopefully prevent any data theft. The information that hackers find valuable are items like:
- Credit card numbers
- Phone numbers
- Social security numbers
- Bank account numbers
