Even though we make every effort to only show you data that relates to you from the dark web, we can't always guarantee that things won't look strange. We get this information from the dark web, which is run by and for criminals, therefore sometimes you might see something you don’t recognise.
Here are some possible reasons why you may not recognise this:
- The password you’re seeing may be encrypted/hashed or auto generated, in which case you may not recognise it.
- A fraudster has created a false password to get a higher price when selling your information.
- A fraudster has made a mistake and mixed your information with someone else’s.
- Law enforcement have identified personal/financial information being made available for fraud and deliberately amended the information to disrupt future criminal activity.
Although you may not recognise this information, it's still important to update your passwords on all the important services you use. For tips on how to create a strong password, visit our article .
