The amount of data created every day is roughly 2.5 million terabytes. In fact, the last two years of human history have created more than 90% of all the data in existence!
All this data is stored, traded, tracked, & hacked more quickly than ever before. Keeping tabs on the data linked to you becomes harder as this global pool constantly grows.
Your data says a lot about you, and the more data on you someone has, the easier it becomes to find your real identity. The downsides to this are very obvious, with identity theft and the violation of your right to privacy being of top concern.
At Dock, we’ve built several tools to help you secure and control your data. To effectively do this, it’s important to know what identifying information about you is out there.
With this in mind, it is our pleasure to announce Dock’s latest feature, Identity Scanner!
“We want to empower you to improve the relationship between yourself and your data.”
How Identity Scanner Helps
Our Identity Scanner provides a snapshot of your identifying data that is available on the web. We also monitor any changes to this information, so you’ll know the second your identity could be at risk.
We search social websites, data broker databases, and various other public stores of data, and present it to you in an easy-to-understand Identity Profile.
To get the most out of Identity Scanner, we recommend that you also use our other Dock apps as they are meant to compliment each other.
Fully utilizing all 3 of them will allow you to build a complete risk profile of your identity and data.
You can further this benefit be being proactive and deleting your unused accounts (available through Find My Accounts), along with changing any passwords on accounts that show up in Data Breach Finder.
If you do all of this, you’ll be well on your way to controlling your data and will feel safer while using the web!
The Identity Scanner feature is live! Try it out right here and let us know what you think.
Also, don’t forget about our other awesome apps:
- Find My Accounts — Scans your email for old/unused accounts that you can optionally delete.
- Data Breach Finder— Searches to see if an email address has appeared in any known data breaches or dark web marketplaces. Also allows specific passwords to be searched for exposure.
