How does Dashlane scan the dark web? Does it use a third-party provider?
Dashlane's dark web service scans more than 12 billion records attached to hacks and data breaches, with almost a million new records added every day. The dark web data we use is housed entirely within Dashlane's servers. So, each dark web scan is performed internally and no data is ever passed from Dashlane to a third party, including the email addresses you scan using Dashlane's Dark Web Monitoring. Dashlane partnered with a leading online intelligence company named SpyCloud to provide the dark web data.
Is my email used for anything other than the dark web scan?
No. Your email address is only used to perform the dark web scan. For your security, no email address can be scanned without the owner of that email address verifying they want to have the scan performed.
What does the dark web scan search for?
The scan searches for the provided email address and alerts you when it finds that email address. The scan also searches for leaked personal information linked to that email address such as passwords, bank account numbers, social security numbers, and so on.
Can the same email be monitored in multiple Dashlane accounts?
Yes. You still need to verify the address through the email we send each time you add it to Dark Web Monitoring in an additional Dashlane account.
