Distress Claims has my data been breached

When people see news of the significant legal action we have launched, people often want to know: has my data been breached in the Virgin Media incident?

Once they know the answer, people then want to know what they can do about it. As such, this article is designed to be a brief FAQ to answer these key questions for you. We will address: has my data been breached? Can I join the legal action? What do I need to do now?

We will also address how you can get more information about how the No Win, No Fee works as well, and we’ll give you a little insight into who we are as well.

Has my data been breached in the Virgin Media leak incident?

Key question: has my data been breached in the Virgin Media data leak that involved information being exposed between April 2019 and February 2020?

Answer: you should have been informed by Virgin Media if you were one of the 900,000 victims of the data breach. We know that they have sent out notifications by email and by text and may have used other forms of communication also. They are duty-bound in accordance with the GDPR to alert all victims, but some could slip through the net. If you have changed your details and they’re not aware of this, especially for those who are not customers, you may not have heard from them.

Can I join the legal action?
