     The dark web is a hidden part of the internet that must be accessed using special software. This part of the Internet is often home to those seeking privacy (for both legal and illegal activity). Hackers and Identity Theft rings commonly use the ‘Dark Web’ to traffic in stolen sensitive information. Information commonly for sale on the ‘Dark Web’ might be Social Security numbers, credit cards, or login credentials. This data is bought in bulk from dark web marketplaces.

  • Enable Two-Factor Authentication: Add an extra layer of security to your online accounts.
  • Monitor Your Credit: Regularly check your credit report for any unusual activity.
