Google announced in an update on Tuesday that its dark web monitoring service, also known as “dark web reporting,” will be available to all Google users in 46 countries, including the US and UK, by the end of the month, according to Fast company. Previously, the feature was only available to users with a Google One membership.

The Dark Web Report will be located on the “About You” page when you visit myactivity.google.com.

Google’s “dark web reporting” feature will scan the underbelly of algorithms that ended up on the wrong end of digital tracks to determine if your personal information has been leaked. This includes information such as your name, address, phone numbers and email accounts.

It’s a useful feature, especially if you’re one of the millions of people who have been victims of hacking, data breaches, or identity theft. Just a few months ago, the information of 7.6 million AT&T customers was leaked onto the dark web, forcing the telecom giant to reset the passwords of all affected users.

Other services like Proton Mail and LastPass already have features that monitor the dark web for leaked user information and passwords and alert you if they find anything.
