EasyJet has admitted that a “highly sophisticated cyber-attack” has affected approximately nine million customers.
Whilst the risk of identity theft is low, if you have booked or travelled on easyJet, and have provided your personal details online, then we would recommend taking a few steps to ensure your safety and minimise the risk of fraudulent activity.
Be Aware of Phishing attacks
- Criminals may use your personal details to target you with convincing emails, text messages, or phone calls
- Do not provide any personal or financial details unless you have initiated contact with easyJet directly using the numbers or forms on the easyJet website
Check your bank/credit card statements
- If you notice any unusual activity contact your bank/credit card company immediately to place a hold on your card
Change your passwords
- Ensure that the password you use for easyJet website is not the same as your banking passwords
- Consider using a password manager. We can point you in the direction of trusted providers
