The Dark Web is part of the much larger Deep Web, which is an area of the internet which has not been indexed by any search engines, such as Google, Bing and Yahoo. You need specific software and browsers to access the Deep Web and mostly contains things such as banking, academic info, medical records, legal documents and government resources.
Some parts of the Dark Web are used for good. Many dissidents like the anonymity of the Dark Web and it is especially useful in closed totalitarian societies to voice opinions or to speak out.
It is unlikely the average person would be able to access the Dark Web, where we have the ability to do this for you and check to see if your personal information is for sale on there.
If you find out your details are on the Dark Web, as a Notty Account holder you have access to our Help section that gives you guidance on what to do.
It is safe for Notty to search the Dark Web for personal information,using specialist search software that allows us to look safely.We would not recommend that you search directly, as you could accidentally give away your information or visit locationson the dark web that are involved in serious criminal activity.

Cybercrime is on the increase and can have a financial and emotional effect on a person if this happens. The threat of attacks is rising significantly, with the latest figures revealing the substantial growth of this type of criminal activity - the National Crime Agency state that cybercrime now accounts for over 50% of ALL crimes in the UK.
We are becoming so much more technology-led and our reliance on the technology grows. You and your family may have access to smart phones, computers, laptops and WIFI networks where so many of your personal details are stored. This leaves the door wide open for criminals and hackers to get hold of your data and sell on to criminals via the dark web. This can leave an emotional and financial effect on yourself and your family.
Checking that your information is safe, not for sale or being misused, by having a Notty Account and using the Notty CyberCare will dramatically reduce any risk and greater chance of protecting your family.
Cybercrime is the theft of personal information from your online accounts; via electronic items such as your PC or mobile phone; from your bank account or your debit/ credit card details to buy goods.
Cybercrime now accounts for over 50% of all crime in the UK according to the National Crime Agency. Computers are being attacked by hackers at a rate of one every 39 seconds. Phishing, social engineering and ransomware are the three biggest threats that steal your details, which in turn can be sold on and criminals can then open new lines of credit in your name. With phishing, they can also gain access to every contact within a stolen email account.
The Notty Account has three tools to help protect you - Social Media Score, Dark Web watch and CyberCare. By using all three of these you can get a full picture of information online about you.
With your Notty Account we provide the tools for you to see information about you that is on the internet, both through what you have added via Social Media or has been taken by criminals, and is now for sale on the Dark Web.
We do recommend that you protect yourself when using the internet and ensure you keep your personal information safe.
Businesses invest large amounts of money into protecting your data and GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) specifies how you should be protected, but you cannot 100% guarantee that criminals won't try to infiltrate the fire walls.

In the Notty Market, we will compare a variety of loans for you to choose from. How much you can borrow depends on your circumstances and what type of loan you are applying for.
For example, a Home Owner Loan can go up to and over £100,000, where as an Unsecured Loan will never be more than £25,000 but can start as low as £100.
Each lender is different in how they look at your circumstances, with some having stricter rules than others.
We are a Broker and not a Lender. Therefore, we cannot guarantee acceptance of any loan application you make from our chosen list of lenders.
We are a Broker not a lender. Therefore, we do perform a credit check. However, the lender you choose may perform a credit check that will be seen on your credit file.
There are a variety of reasons why you may have been refused a loan or credit card, making it hard to pinpoint the cause. It could be due to information found on your Credit File such as missed payments on a loan or credit card, mobile contract or mortgage. To a potential lender this may make you a high risk, each lender is different in how they interpret the score. You may not be registered on your local electoral roll or your current address is incorrect with the credit reference agencies.
If you have multiple bank accounts, loans or finance, this will also affect your ability to obtain finance. Having no credit history can be as bad as having a bad credit history. Those obtaining finance for the first time may struggle as lenders have no evidence of whether the finance will be repaid.
In addition to the traditional ways lenders check your credit history, some have now started to look at your Social Media Credit Score. A large proportion of Social Media users post information about how they live their lives, where they spend money and this information can be used to assess a person’s ability to repay a loan.Another reason maybe is that you have been a victim of identity fraud. However, when you a Notty account you get FREE Cyber Care that will help protect you against scams.
With your Notty Account, you get access to products and services to help manage your life, including loans.
You can get a loan with bad credit, but this is dependent upon the lender. We cannot guarantee that you will be accepted by one of the lenders but we will display a list of lenders that provide the value of loan you require, for you to select which ones is best for your circumstances.
Every lender has their own criteria for accepting an applicant for a loan/ cash advance (i.e. APR’s, fees, repayment terms, renewal policies etc.) and the approval process differs for each lender. You will need to apply to your chosen lender to find out if you will be accepted.
Alternatively, if you are looking for a bad credit loan under £3000, you can apply at Pixie Loans, who will search their panel of lenders for an instant decision.
If you have taken out a loan, credit card or any other form of credit account. you are struggling to make payment, contact the lender directly. They are there to help and can offer you different options to help with repayments.
When looking for credit, firstly you need to make sure you can afford to make the repayments comfortably, and ensure the information stored by Credit Reference Agencies is correct. In addition to checking your Credit File, you also need to check what your Social Credit Score is, as this could affect a lenders decision to offer you credit. Being careful what you say and post on Social Media is the best way to manage your Social Credit Score.
Yes, some finance companies will look at your Social Media Accounts. From this they can make decisions as to whether you are a high risk in repaying finance or if you have been honest, or not, on your application form.
