Dark Web is on the agenda with user information
With the statistics shared by Digital Shadows, the danger on the Dark Web once again surfaced. According to statistics, the information of more than 15 billion users on Dark Web has been put up for sale. This means that 2 user information is put up for sale for each user.
Looking at the general picture, it is seen that it has increased by 300 percent since 2018.
Moreover, the presence of personal data, such as bank accounts, together with their usernames and passwords shows how dangerous the danger is.
Some of the 15 billion user data is shared free of charge, while some are sold for an average of $15.43. In the bank and financial data, an average of $70 has been reached.
Users also need to be careful about protecting personal data. Especially performing two-step authentication is one of the most important steps that users can take in this regard. The disclosure of personal data can lead to huge material and moral losses for users.
