What Is A Dark Web Scan?

A lot of people ask us“what is the dark web?” The dark web is an area of the internet that is not indexed by search engines and is known for its illegal activity. Recently, Hannah was concerned about her credit card information is on the dark web.


If you are currently using the internet without any cybersecurity, you may be concerned about if cybercriminals have access to your private information and are sharing it on the dark web. If so, you should consider reaching out to an IT service company not only to set up a cybersecurity plan, but to also see what information is already out there.

When clients come to us with this concern, we start by doing a dark web scan, to see what information has already been leaked. If we do find that information has been posted onto the dark web and is at risk of being used, we will change your passwords, implement firewalls, and put antivirus software in place to protect you. This should prevent any breaches in the future, and will make you more secure overall.

By using an IT company to secure your online information, you are avoiding a disastrous event that could damage your finances, family members, or personal life. If you have any questions about cybersecurity or the dark web, Rekall Technologies can assist you.
