Google is bringing its Dark Web reports to all users

Google will make its “Dark Web reports” feature available to all Google Account holders starting in late July 2024, expanding access beyond the current Google One subscribers. This announcement, first reported by 9toGoogle, was revealed through a pop-up banner in the Google One application, indicating that the feature “will no longer be available in Google One in late July.”

Instead of being limited to Google One subscribers, Dark Web reports will be integrated into the “Results about you” section, providing a comprehensive solution for users to monitor and protect their online presence. Google stated, “Dark web report will become available to all users with a consumer Google Account. Dark web report is integrated with Results about you as a combined solution to help users protect their online presence.”

Currently available in 46 countries, Dark Web reports allow users to set up profiles that monitor the dark web for personal data breaches and leaks, scanning for sensitive information such as names, addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses. The “Results about you” feature, which enables users to find and request the removal of search results containing their personal information, will now work in conjunction with Dark Web reports.

“Starting late July 2024, dark web report will no longer require a Google One membership. All users signed into their Google Accounts can use the feature as it’s made available along with Results about you,” Google confirmed.
