Data breaches are happening all day, every day, but why should you be worried? Your online safety is of the utmost importance and checking to see if you have been a victim of a data breach should be a priority.
Here at Protect My Privacy, we have outlined why you should subscribe to breach notifications in our app. By doing so, you are giving yourself the best chance of ensuring your online safety and putting that extra safety net around your digital health.
As with any issue in your life, the earlier you are aware of the problem, the easier it is to handle. This is the same with being affected by a data breach. For example, say your warning lights are flashing in your car, thus telling you there is a problem. You will take it to a garage as soon as possible because you know that if you leave the problem long enough, it will only harm your car more. This is the same with a data breach. The longer your data remains vulnerable, the harsher the consequences.
At Protect My Privacy, we provide this service, but for your online safety, for free! As with a mechanic, we streamline this service and do the work for you, so you can rest easy regarding your data.
If you’ve been notified by a company that you’ve been involved in a breach, this does not mean that it is the only one that you have been affected by.
When you are notified about a data breach, this allows you to take action instantly. You can change your passwords and turn on extra security methods with the affected data, thus allowing you peace of mind.
Protect My Privacy regularly searches the dark web for personal data that has been exposed in a breach; hacked, stolen, or just inadvertently made public by incompetent companies. By downloading our app, and enabling breach monitoring you’ll receive weekly breach checks and notifications telling you about any new breaches.
We take security seriously which is why we’ve been assessed and certified for addressing cybersecurity effectively and mitigating the risk from Internet-based threats.
