What to do after a data leak alert?

Is there a way to erase or undo a data breach?

Once information has been leaked from a data breach, it becomes publicly available. This means it is nearly impossible to completely erase. Because of that, it is important to work on mitigating the potential damage that a data breach could cause by securing your accounts as promptly as possible.

What should I do after a data breach has been discovered?

Regardless of the size of a data breach, it's important that you promptly secure all associated accounts. Here are 3 easy steps you can take to mitigate some of the risks and protect yourself.

Step 1: Enable 2FA (two-factor authentication)

The first step is to enable 2FA for your accounts. This is an extra layer of security for your accounts beyond just a username and password. Jumbo can help you enable 2FA on Twitter, LinkedIn, Google and Amazon. Learn more about 2FA here.

Step 2: Use a Password manager

The next step is to change your password for each account. One of the best ways to do this is to use a password manager. Whether it's a paid service or a free one that's included in your browser, a password manager will help you maintain unique, powerful passwords to keep your accounts secure.

Step 3: Connect all your emails to Jumbo's Data Leak Monitoring
