What should you do if your data is breached?
Local internet security authority Stay Smart Online has suggestions on how to stay safe online.
- Do not click on links in emails or text messages claiming to be from myGov or Medicare. myGov will never send you a text, email or attachment with hyperlinks or web addresses.
- Don’t open messages if you don’t know the sender, or if you’re not expecting them.
- Be suspicious of messages that aren’t addressed directly to you, or don’t use your correct name.
- Login to your official myGov account by typing the web address into your browser, to check your inbox for any legitimate emails from Medicare.
- You can also contact the organisation separately to check if they have sent the message.
Stay Smart Online also recommend that anyone who suspects their details have been stolen for nefarious purposes to contact Australia’s National Identity and Cyber Support Service IDCare or use their free Cyber First Aid Kit
