If you are and old Optus customer of a current Optus customer your personal details and important documentation may have been exposed to criminals as a result of a data breach at Optus.

This is a serious data breach and people are warned to be alert and prepared to receive an increase of scam calls, emails and messages from criminals pretending to be Optus, your bank, your license distributor or even the government.

It is important to pay close attention to your bank accounts and make sure you have multifactor authentication enabled on all your account that offer this level of security.

On your phones and devices I suggest that you enable biometrics as another step to accessing your accounts and apps on your phone.

If you don't use a banking app now is the time to install it on your phone so that you have better control of your accounts and more options if you notice unusual activity.

There is more information on what you can do if you think you are a victim inside the forum.

If you need help learning more about this breach and other online life skills consider becoming a community member and get more alerts and free remote support and training to help you stay safe online.
