If you used Uber prior to October 2016, your name, email address, phone number, and driver’s license number may have been stolen.
Uber recently came forward about a massive data breach affecting 600,000 users in the U.S. and potentially 57 million users worldwide. The company does not believe any data has been used fraudulently. However, the company is offering free credit monitoring and identity theft protection services to U.S. customers whose data was hacked.
You can check if your account was included in the breach by logging on to your Uber account.
If you have a Texas Trust Bonus Checking account, you can protect your identity for free with IDProtect. This service protects your personal information through daily monitoring of credit files and databases including Social Security, real property records, and public information.
This service is free to our members with Bonus Checking, their joint account holders, and eligible family members to help protect from identity theft and fraud. The Uber breach is just another example of the importance of IDProtect. To sign up, visit IDProtectMe247.com or call (877) 610-7889 for assistance with registration and activation.
