Data Breach Scanner

Data Breach Scanner is a NordPass tool that helps you to find out if you’ve been hacked and if any of your personal data has been exposed in a data breach. It searches the web for leaked databases and matches them with email addresses and credit cards that you have provided. Data Breach Scanner is available with NordPass Premium and business plans.

 

NordPass Data Breach Scanner will notify you when your account or credit card has been compromised. We will also provide you with information about the breach, which details have been leaked, and what actions you should take to resolve the breach. 

 

Important: A new version of Data Breach Scanner has been released recently. In order to continue using the tool, please enable it again and agree with our Privacy Policy.

  3. If the breach is no longer relevant or you have already updated your leaked data, select Mark as Resolved. Remember that to change your password for the leaked account, you will need to change it on the website and only then update it in NordPass. Changing your password in NordPass only will not actually change it.
