Data Breaches and You
Another data breach. And this time, it’s your personal information. Take a deep breath. Then check out this new video from the FTC.
The video walks you through the steps to take if your information was part of a data breach:
- Visit IdentityTheft.gov/databreach to get detailed advice, based on the type of information exposed.
- If the breached company offers you free credit monitoring, take advantage of it.
- Consider placing a fraud alert or credit freeze.
What if your Social Security number was exposed? Or an online login or password? Or your child’s information? Relax.
