The dark web. What is it exactly?

Find me on:

You've no doubt heard the term 'dark web', but perhaps you're not sure exactly what it is? Our infographic below gives a simple explanation. But before you scroll down, keep the following in mind...

Everything has a price on the dark web. According to the Dark Web Index, scammers can trade your Netflix or Apple login details for as little US$28. Facebook credentials are even cheaper and sell for just over US$5. Paypal is much more expensive - averaging almost US$250 each when there is a healthy account balance at login.

So you really need to be diligent with your password security. We strongly recommend two-factor authentication which gives you an extra layer of protection. It's just too easy for your information to be spread across the dark web otherwise.
