A recent Delta Airlines data breach stemmed from suspicious activity in late 2017.

Heads Up if You Fly Delta ✈

On March 28th, Delta Airlines was notified by a company that provides online chat services for Delta and many other companies that they had been involved in a cyber incident. The Delta Airlines data breach is believed to have occurred from September 26th to October 12th, 2017. During this time certain customer payment information for these chat clients, including Delta, may have been accessed.

Note that no other customer personal information, such as passport, government ID, security, or SkyMiles information was impacted.

To help protect your personal information, Delta is partnering with AllClear ID, a customer security and fraud protection firm, to monitor and protect your identity at no cost to you. Delta customers who believe they were impacted can get the following protection services for the next 24 months:

  • AllClear Identity Repair: No enrollment is required.
  • AllClear Fraud Alerts with Credit Monitoring: This service includes the ability to set, renew, and remove 90-day fraud alerts on your credit file to help protect you from credit fraud. In addition, it provides credit monitoring services, a once annual credit score and credit report, and a $1 million identity theft insurance policy.

    It seems like breaches are more common these days. That’s the one thing I don’t like about technology it seems that creeps have an easier en route to your personal information.

      That’s the main reason I don’t use many internet connected devices. I don’t use voice assistants because they are always listening. My bluetooth speakers play music and nothing else. I don’t have home automation because it means my home would be hackable. I don’t create accounts just to get free shipping from a site that I am likely only ordering from once. I haven’t downloaded the app for each restaurant or store that I like. I want my information to be in as few places as possible.

      I disable or severely limit all permissions that violate my privacy. I disabled the social media apps that came preinstalled on my phone. My phone wouldn’t let me delete them. I just use the websites. I have every Facebook setting set so my stuff is viewed by as few people as possible. I don’t post pictures of myself. I haven’t posted on my wall/timeline since 2014. I only post in private groups and occasionally on company pages for customer service.

      I think the most ridiculous internet connected device is a coffee maker. You don’t need your phone to be able to have coffee when you wake up. There are coffee makers that have timers on them that have been around for years. I don’t need my phone to turn the lights on. Flipping a switch isn’t hard.

        To further illustrate how closely I try to guard my personal info and privacy, I have Duck tape over the webcam on both of my laptops.

          I have washi tape over my webcams. I feel the same way as you do, technology is very limited around me. Don’t have machines/robots to ask to do things for me, the government has said before people can listen in on those things. And I don’t do social media. Technology is good in my opinion in moderation. I would rather just walk by and flip the light switch Lol 😉

        Sara,

        You NAILED it. My kids are not happy that I won’t purchase an Echo, just for that very reason. We are too connected in this world. Social Media is just another platform to show your narcissism to the world! Every day there are attempts to hack into computer systems or even your personal devices. Its happening at an alarming rate.

    Whatever happened to the credit reporting company? I went on to file my claim and start monitoring, but had no luck. I informed my husband of opening up an account to use on the internet or while traveling only. It is too scary. Cybercrime is too prevalent.
