It’s estimated that 6.58 million accounts are compromised every day, either by hackers breaking into a system and stealing usernames and passwords, or by negligent companies leaking that data onto the web. This is called a “data breach”, and without a strong password or a way to reliably know which accounts are at risk, it’s always possible for hackers to break into an online account and grab valuable personal information. On top of all this, there are many companies out there that can legally harvest and sell information about you, or worse, leaving it exposed to be stolen by criminals online.
AVG BreachGuard is your solution. We scan the dark web 24/7 for any sign of your personal information, and if we spot any leaks, we’ll alert you immediately and walk you through the steps you’ll need to take to secure your accounts. We can also gauge how secure you are when you’re not at risk, and help you maximize your own security so you’ll be ready to protect yourself if and when you’re the victim of another leak. Finally, BreachGuard sends requests to data brokers who have legally collected your personal information to delete what they know about you so they can’t sell it to third parties.
