It might be tempting to assume that your credit card number is the holy grail for hackers, in terms of the value that it can fetch on the dark web. Especially when you stop and think about all of the places that you’ve given your card number to — everywhere you’ve typed it online or physically swiped the card in person — it’s easy to see where it’s the kind of thing that would be somewhat easy for thieves to get their hands on, and something they’d love to have since it ostensibly translates into instant financial gain.
Based on a new dark web price index for 2021 that was prepared by the data privacy- and cybersecurity-focused website Privacy Affairs, however, it’s actually your Gmail account that would in many cases reap a much better financial reward for hackers than a stolen credit card number.
