We study a lepton portal dark matter model, motivated by the deviation of the W boson mass reported by the CDF collaboration. We introduce vectorlike leptons and a scalar dark matter (DM) that exclusively couples to the extra leptons and muon. The one-loop corrections induced by the new particles can shift the W boson mass. Besides, the discrepancy in the muon anomalous magnetic moment and the DM density can simultaneously be explained by this setup, if the vectorlike lepton is lighter than 200 GeV and nearly degenerate with the DM particle. We also see that the constraints on such a light extra lepton from the collider experiments can be evaded due to the existence of the DM particle.
