Dark Web Monitoring FAQs

Have more questions? Visit our Help Center.

Is Dark Web Monitoring secure?

Yes. We download the dark web data we use in Dark Web Monitoring to our servers. We do not transfer this data, or the email addresses you add to Dark Web Monitoring, to anyone else. When you add an email to Dark Web Monitoring, we only use the address to perform the dark web scan.

Our dark web data includes more than 12 billion records attached to hacks and data breaches, and we add nearly a million new records every day.

How does Dark Web Monitoring work?

Step 1: You choose the email addresses you want to track with Dark Web Monitoring.

Step 2: Dashlane scans the dark web for personal information related to that address. We look for these types of personal info and more:

  • Usernames

  • Passwords

  • Contact information

  • Credit cards

  • Social Security numbers and other ID numbers

  • Computer IP addresses

Step 3: If we find anything, we give you a report with everything we found and we ask you to change passwords for any compromised logins.

Step 4: We continue to scan the dark web and let you know if any new breaches affect your personal info. If we find anything to worry about, we alert you by email and with a pop-up the next time you open Dashlane.

How does Dark Web Monitoring for Master Password work?

Dark Web Monitoring for Master Password uses a highly secure process to check if a password matching your Master Password has been found on the dark web without revealing your password to anyone. This process happens once daily when you enter your Master Password in our app.

Important: Dark Web Monitoring for Master Password upholds our zero-knowledge approach to security and does not reveal your Master Password to Dashlane or anyone else.

How does Dark Web Monitoring for Master Password protect my organization?

With Dark Web Monitoring for Master Password, your employees get an alert if their Master Password is found on the dark web. We will ask them to change their Master Password as soon as possible. This feature helps strengthen your organization's security and empowers employees to proactively protect their accounts.

If Dashlane does not know my Master Password, how can you search for it on the dark web?

Dashlane ensures privacy by transforming your password into an irreversible code known as a "hash" before sending any data to our servers. This hash-based approach allows us to compare a portion of your Master Password securely without revealing the actual password, safeguarding your information even from our server administrators. If a match is found on the dark web, you will be alerted to change your password without compromising your Master Password's confidentiality.
