Free Dark Web Monitoring?? Thanks Google!!

Google has a Christmas gift for you and your team. Yes, really!

In its latest release of its Chrome browser, Google is taking a huge step in protecting your users. With a database of over 4 billion stolen records, the company is now offering free Dark Web alerting to users.

The [Chrome] browser will now alert them if the password they typed in has previously been stolen in a data breach.

This is effectively like real-time Dark Web monitoring, for free! Real-time alerts allow your users to update a compromised password right away.

To ensure security, Google uses multiple layers of encryption. And for the security geeks out there, the company uses a security protocol known as private set intersection with blinding.

Only you discover if your username and password have been compromised.

Leveraging its massive database of stolen credentials from the Dark Web, Chrome only uses hashed and encrypted usernames and passwords. This means that only the user knows the actual password.

For Partners and clients interested in a seamless and FREE added layer of security, this is for you!

To prevent credential theft in the first place, check out INFIMA's fully automated Training Platform here!
