CityBee – 110,156 breached accounts
In February 2021, car-sharing service CityBee announced they’d suffered a data breach that exposed 110k customers’ personal information. The breach exposed names, email addresses, government issued IDs and passwords stored as unsalted SHA-1 hashes.
If you have a CityBee account please follow these steps:
- Change your password and make sure your new password is at least 10 characters long and contains an upper case, lower case, number and a symbol. You can even use a modified phrase or a line from a song if that helps you remember.
- Make sure you do not use the same password twice as this leaves you vulnerable to credential stuffing.
- Find a good password manager tool to help you remember all of your passwords. Some of our users say that 1Password is a good tool.
- Check out Incognito’s Email Hack Check tool. All you have to do is enter your email address and we will tell you instantly if it has been involved in one of the many data breaches that happen every day.
Let me know if you need any help here and please feel free to share this tip with family and friends.
All the best,
