Hi Guys,

I hope you are well.

Zurich – 756,737 breached accounts
In January 2023, the Japanese arm of Zurich insurance suffered a data breach that exposed 2.6M customer records with over 756k unique email addresses. The data was subsequently posted to a popular hacking forum and also included names, genders, dates of birth and details of insured vehicles. The data was provided to Incognito via HIBP, by a source who requested it be attributed to “IntelBroker”.

If you have an account with Zurich, 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 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.

All the best,
Max Roberts,
