What is the Dark Web Monitor?

In brief terms, the Dark Web Monitor is a technology that scans the internet for any credential leaks associated with your registered NordVPN e-mail address. In the case that any such leaks are found, you will be immediately notified by the NordVPN app. Read more about the feature's usefulness on our blog: https://nordvpn.com/blog/dark-web-monitor/
