You’ve heard of the huge Virgin Media data breach and may have seen our action for justice in the news. If you have had relations with the company, you may be wondering: has my data been exposed?

Has my data been exposed in the Virgin Media data breach?

Here’s a brief Q and A to answer some of the key questions about how to know if your data has been exposed and what this may mean:

Q: Has my data been exposed in the Virgin Media data breach?

A: You should have received notification from the company to confirm if it was. This might have been issued by email or text, and should have been received shortly after news of the incident hit the headlines.

Q: Has my contract data been exposed?

A: In over 1,000 cases, potentially private and sensitive contact data may have been exposed as well as the usual personal details affected by the leak. You have the right to know exactly what information of yours was affected, but you may not be told immediately what data has been involved. If you are not sure, we can find this out for you as part of the compensation action that we have launched. Some of the data involved may link some customers to explicit websites.

Q: Should I be worried about the risks of the data breach?

A: We have been representing people for data breach compensation cases for years. We fight for the rights of thousands of people for individual cases and in over 45 group and multi-party actions too. As such, we know all too well just how bad the risks can be. You should be wary of the risks, and you can read more about this in our previous article here.

Q: Can I claim compensation?

A: If you have received confirmation that your information has been exposed in the data breach, you should be eligible to join our compensation action today.
