Jumbo discovered a data breach on one of my accounts. What should my next steps be?
Finding out your data has been compromised can be alarming. After discovering a data breach, here are 3 easy steps you can take to mitigate some of the risks and protect yourself moving forward.
Step 1: Secure Logins with Jumbo: Enable 2FA (two-factor authentication)
The first step towards protecting yourself after a breach is to enable 2FA on 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 Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google, Dropbox and Amazon. You can learn more about 2FA here.
The next step is to change your passwords using complex and unique passwords 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 internet browser, a password manager will help you maintain unique, powerful passwords to keep your accounts secure.
Step 3: Connect all your emails to Dark Web Data Breach monitoring
Since you experienced a breach, it's important to protect yourself across all of your personal and work accounts. With Jumbo Pro, you can connect unlimited email accounts for ongoing Dark Web monitoring. You won't just be alerted of past breaches: Jumbo will alert you of any future threats moving forward.
