Google One Dark Web Report feature is going to be discontinued, all users will get a similar feature this month


Google has announced that it will be rolling out Dark Web Reports to all account users from the end of July. The service enables a user to keep track of their data emerging on the dark web that could prove potentially harmful. Previously restricted to users with a Google One subscription, it will now be accessible to all users. The development comes just weeks after the tech giant discontinued VPN by Google One service.

Dark web report on Google

Google’s Dark Web Report notifies users that their personal information has been found in a data breach. When data breach information is made available to Google, the company examines the data associated with the user’s email address or other information, including their name, phone number, address, username, password, or social security number.

Users can then make better decisions about the security of their data. Although the Dark Web Report service was previously bundled with Google One subscriptions, it will soon be made available to all Google account holders. However, the service is not available to users with Google Workspace or supervised accounts.

The Google One app now includes a message telling users that the Dark Web Reports feature will no longer be part of Google One subscriptions starting at the end of July. It also includes a link to a support document that states that “Dark Web Reports will become available to all users with a consumer Google Account.”

With this change, users do not need to download the app or log in to access the reports. According to Google, the dark web reports will be merged with Google. Results about you Page – Another service from the company that enables users to check whether their personal information appears in search results. They can also request the removal of their data from the web.

Dark web reports are available in 46 countries, including India, Japan, the UK and the US.

The dark web data monitoring has been expanded to all users just weeks after Google discontinued another feature – continuous scroll search on mobile and desktop platforms. In its place, the tech giant has opted for page-number based search.

Meanwhile, the dark web monitoring feature will become a part of the appropriately named Google Graveyard — a place where all discarded Google services eventually go, including Google Stadia, Pixel Pass, YouTube Stories, and the most recent addition, VPN by Google One.
