Please see below the details of two recent data breaches. Have you ever used any of these services?
GiveSendGo – 89,966 breached accounts
In February 2022, the Christian fundraising service GiveSendGo suffered a data breach that exposed the personal data of 90k donors to the Canadian “Freedom Convoy” protest against vaccine mandates. The breach exposed names, email addresses, postcodes, donation amounts, and comments left at the time of donation.
- Change your password and make sure your new password is at least ten 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.
Please let me know if you need any help in relation to this.
All the best,
