Have you ever used the online credit reporting company Experian?
Experian (2020) – 1,284,637 breached accounts
In August 2020, Experian suffered a data breach which exposed the personal information of tens of millions of individuals. Only 1.3M of the records contained email addresses, whilst most contained government issued identity numbers, names, addresses, occupations and employers, amongst other personal information.
Please take the following actions if you have ever used Experian:
- Change your password right away and never use the same password twice (see my article on credential stuffing below)
- Send an email to them and let them know that you are aware of the breach and ask them to provide you with Identity protection and credit Monitoring services.
Please let me know if you need any help in relation to this or with anything else.
