What Is A Dark Web Scan?

Saw an ad today for a free “Dark Web Scan.” This was from another credit company hoping to cash in on fear caused by hack news.

The scan isn’t a scam… But it probably isn’t all that useful. And if you sign up then you are just giving power to this company.

There are ways to do this sort of scan yourself without agreeing to marketing and potential other services.

Let us know if you want details. In the meantime, know that “Dark Web Scan” is a fear phrase, designed to use users fears as a way to profit.
