EasyJet Data Breach - What You Need To Know

SHARE

EasyJet have confirmed that details for 9 million of their customers were accessed in a data breach.

  • EasyJet customers who paid with a debit, credit or charge card that was compromised were contacted in April by email. If you weren’t contacted, your card was not impacted.
  • EasyJet are continuing to contact customers whose names, email addresses and travel details have been compromised. If you are not contacted by 26 May, then your information has not been accessed.

Please continue to stay alert to suspicious calls, emails or texts from anyone pretending to be EasyJet or other trusted organisations, as scammers will take advantage of this situation.

Key points to remember, include:

  • Never give away your personal information, your card details or PINs.
  • Don’t move your money, even if you’re told it’s to protect your account.
  • If you ever have any concerns that the person you’re speaking to is not genuine, or that they’re asking you to do something that seems suspicious, such as keying a payment online, or providing your card or account details, please end the call.
  • Email addresses and phone numbers can be faked.
  • Think twice before clicking on links.

Please contact us straight away on 020 7770 0011 if you think you’ve been targeted or to report anything suspicious.
