Why didn't Jumbo alert me about a recent breach?

While Jumbo tries to keep up to date with the latest breaches, the data sets that Jumbo sorts through may only contain a portion of all the leaks that occur, and it can take time for these data sets to update with more recent leaks. Jumbo will only display a data breach if the source is readily verifiable. 

Additionally, it's rare for 100% of a user base to be included in a leak. It's always possible that even though you used a service, your information ultimately wasn't included in the breach. 

That being said, the best way to protect yourself is to take a proactive approach to your security:

  1. Do not use similar/common passwords between accounts. Each password should be completely unique and should not contain any personal information.
  2. Use a password manager.
  3. Set up 2FA or 2-factor authentication to keep your accounts safe even if the passwords are breached. 2FA will add an extra layer of security to your logins by asking for a unique code every time you login.
  4. Don't use unsecured Wi-Fi networks when in public.
  5. Be wary of messages that ask you for personal information as they may be phishing attempts.
