How to protect yourself if you think you've been affected by the EasyJet cyber breach

Advice and guidance if you think you have been affected.

Action Fraud has been made aware by the National Cyber Security Centre of the cyber breach affecting EasyJet customers. We’re currently monitoring our system for EasyJet related reports to see if there has been a significant increase.

At this time we’re advising the public that if they think they’ve been a victim of fraud as a result of a data breach, to report it Action Fraud via the online reporting tool or by calling 0300 123 2040.

Here is what to do if you think you have been affected:

  • Phishing – Criminals may use your personal details to target you with convincing emails, texts and calls. Be suspicious of unsolicited requests for your personal or financial details. If you receive an email which you’re not quite sure about, forward it to the Suspicious Email Reporting Service (SERS): report@phishing.gov.uk.
  • Financial details – If your financial data was compromised, be vigilant against any unusual activity in your bank accounts or suspicious phone calls and emails asking for further information. If you notice any unauthorised transactions, notify your bank or card company.  
  • Passwords –Customers should ensure their passwords are secure. If you have been affected, you may want to consider changing passwords for key accounts such as banking. See Cyber Aware's advice on creating a good password that you can remember, or read the NCSC’s blog post for help on using a password manager.
  • Report - If you think you have been a victim of fraud or cybercrime, report it to us
