Here’s how much your credit card information is being sold for

Having your passwords, credit card, or even full-blown identity stolen can cause immeasurable harm and trauma to victims.

Yet personal information sells for mere dollars on the dark web.

A new analysis shows the price of a hacked Google account is just $60, while a hacked HBO Max account is a meager $2.

The average cost of a fake US Buy driver’s license online license is $150, and 1,000 fake social media followers will only set you back $2-$5.

The dark web is the notorious ‘hidden’ side of the internet – hosting websites that cannot be found on Google and can only be accessed via special browsers.

Identities and locations of darknet users stay anonymous and cannot be tracked due to layered encryption systems, making it a hotbed for criminals.

Earlier this year, law enforcement agencies around the world just brought down Genesis Market, an online marketplace that bought and sold hacked user data, in Operation Cookie Monster.
