Earlier i took advantage and used the experian scan to see if my emails are found on the dark web and the scan revealed that both my outlook and yahoo email were there. Of course experian offers advice to change the passwords and purchase protection but i wanted to hear what people on bleeping computer have to say about what  they think i need to do about this.  Thank You

Forget the "dark web" - for Experian's purposes it's a marketing term & scare tactic. Don't worry about it and move on.
