Service Is Free to Consumers Both Directly and Through Qualified Channel Partners
Today, ID Experts announced public availability of its new free CyberScan dark web and social media scanning product. Unlike other free dark web offerings, CyberScan not only perpetually scans all levels of the dark web surface, dark and deep for the user and provides them with ongoing monitoring and protection, but it reaches a third more of the dark web than other services. It also includes ID Experts’ innovative new SocialSentry privacy protection service for Facebook users. CyberScan is part of the ID Experts MyIDCare family of digital privacy and identity protection services currently relied upon by millions of Americans.
Users need only provide an email address for CyberScan to begin scanning the dark web for instances where that may have been compromised. The user can then add additional personally identifiable information (e.g., Social Security number, bank account) for CyberScan to look for on the surface, deep and dark web, as well as link their Facebook account in order to scan the social network for malicious and inappropriate content. ID Experts respects the privacy of its members and does not sell personal data to other parties.
“Consumers’ privacy is constantly under attack, and their use of social media just opens new doors for malicious activity,” commented ID Experts President and CEO Tom Kelly. “With each new breach, there’s a compounding effect that nearly guarantees that actors with ill intent have more than enough detail on every one of us. Because consumers are at a heightened risk of harm, we decided to combine our dark web and Facebook privacy scanning solutions as one free offering to consumers.”
The tool accesses a pool of 10 billion credentials and 500 million documents across over 100 thousand data breach incidents sourced from millions of different resources and thousands of hacker operations and is always searching for more resources. Once identified, the product will also provide actionable advice within minutes to help address the risks associated with those compromises.
