Compromised Password Scanner

Automate scanning of the dark web for stolen passwords so you can protect email accounts and credentials found from malicious activity.

Monitor the dark web

Find out when credentials are found on the dark web, without having to go there.

Prevent account takeover

Know when to change compromised credentials and prevent fraudulent activity.

Reduce cyber risk

Limit the exposure window and mitigate the damages of password theft.

Monitors the dark web, so you don’t have to

Automated dark web scanning

Automatically monitors the Dark web for compromised credentials for you. Scans run regularly and alert you when new credentials are found, so you can investigate and update passwords to prevent malicious activity.

Comprehensive, continuous coverage

Scans scour the digital underground and data collections from thousands of breaches with regular updates as new leaks and data breaches are discovered.

Detailed results and reporting

Automated reporting presents compromised credentials found for any enrolled team member’s email address. Results and recommendations reference any identifiable credentials and related data breaches.

How does it work?

Simply add the email addresses you’d like to monitor and get daily alerts and monthly reports (ad hoc reporting is also available) when any stolen credentials are found. Compromised password scanning is recommended to run regularly for all your email addresses with a minimum cadence of monthly reporting.

Frequently Asked Questions

Some of your questions might have already been answered. Read them here.

A compromised password is an individual password that has been exposed in a data leak, documented in a breach, released publicly, or otherwise published online or found on the dark web. Read more about compromised passwords.

When a password database is compromised, the vendor usually will send an email to affected parties notifying them to change their password and enable other security measures, such as multi-factor authentication.

The best way to quickly know if any of your passwords have been leaked is to sign up for an ongoing dark web monitoring service, such as the Defendify Compromised Password Scanner.

Check your current exposure here.

When a password is “compromised”, it means that a vendor, website, application, or other service has been a victim of a data breach. Threat actors gain unauthorized access to large databases of usernames and passwords, personally identifiable information and other sensitive details. Often, they exfiltrate this data and begin selling, trading or circulating it on dark web and other illicit marketplaces.
