    Check your credit card statements and emails.

    There are reports on Reddit of a pretty nasty security breach at Visible. Lots of reports of phones ordered with the credit card or PayPal on file and being shipped to different addresses around the country. Most of these people are now locked out of their accounts.

    Thankfully, my son's account hasn't been, and hopefully won't be affected.

    Does privacy.com require it to be connected to a deposit account, vs a CC? If so, I strongly suggest anyone using it to use a non-primary deposit account, with just enough money in it to fund specific transactions, just in case privacy.com DOES get hacked.

    If you find for some reason that you need a deposit account attached to eBay, I suggest doing the same.

    Funds fraudulently advanced against a CC are MUCH easier to handle than if a large amount gets fraudulently taken from someone's primary deposit account, where the missing funds might be needed for everyday living, and any delay in getting those funds back might cause much more inconvenience than simply disputing a CC purchase.

    Verizon wrapped up their investigation by the weekend, attributing the hacked accounts to credential stuffing (though some victims had claimed on social media that their Verizon Visible login credentials and password were unique to the site). The company issued a statement indicating that it had deployed internal tools to mitigate the issue, provided customers with additional security controls, and advised customers to identify any shared passwords across other accounts and change them as a precaution.

    On Privacy dot com you can delete your funding source. Then add a funding source when/if needed.
    I will be Judged on how I helped the poor, sick & others in need; strangers & loved ones alike.

    My plans:
    Visible (Verizon) UTT & Unlimited Data $25/mo
    Liberty Wireless (T-Mobile) UTT 09.06.22
    T-Mobile Gold Rewards $10yr exp 01.05.22
    Truphone (AT&T) every 180 days by 01.18.22
