The Breach Score

The Syhunt Breach Score is a score of an Internet domain based on publicly available Internet information about its privacy and security track record which is dynamically calculated by the Syhunt Breach software at the end of a Dark Web Scan Plus check. The Breach Score varies from Very Poor to Excellent and takes into account various information from the last 5 up to 15 years.

Today the Breach Score covers over 58 million domains from all over the globe, including regional domains from North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania, and international domains.
