What is a Data Breach Scanner?
- Data Breach Scanner is an in-built NordPass Premium feature that automatically scans leaked databases and compares them to items saved in your vault. If any of your email addresses, passwords, or credit card details have ever been leaked, NordPass will help you identify where and when it happened and what type of data was compromised.
- If any of your passwords have appeared in a breach, we strongly recommend changing them immediately. Update them to a stronger alternative that is longer than 8 characters and contains multiple numbers, symbols as well as upper and lowercase letters. Also, make sure that the compromised password isn’t used to protect your other accounts. If so, change their passwords too.
- If your credit card details have appeared in any breaches, we recommend checking your bank balance for any suspicious activity. If you suspect that someone might be using your credit card, report this to your bank immediately.
