‘What should I do?’

Posted on January 2nd, 2014

If your data has been leaked, don”t panic! There are a few things you can do if you”ve been affected.

First and foremost, you can delete your Snapchat account here – sadly, this won”t remove your phone number from the already circulating leaked database.

If you feel that you”d rather unscrupulous entities not potentially have your phone number, you”re free to contact your phone TelCo, and request that they give you a new number. If you detail the breach, they”ll almost certainly give you a new one.

Lastly, ensure that your security settings are up to scratch on your social media profiles. Be careful about what data you give away to sites when you sign up – if you don”t think a service requires your phone number, don”t give it to them.
