Part 1 Introduction

The Dark Web is part of the internet that search engines, like Google, can't find. Because of that, sites in the Dark Web may be conducting illegal activity that may include your information.


Why care about the Dark Web?

One type of illegal activity that can happen on the Dark Web is the trading or selling of personally identifying information. Thieves use these sites to sell or buy Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, email addresses, passwords, and other stolen or breached data.


What you can do.

Make sure to create and regularly change strong passwords. Also, keep an eye on your financial statements for anything suspicious. These are good practices, but they still may leave you in the dark when it comes to specific threats.
