Privacy Tip #195 – Evite Announces Breach of Account Information of 10 Million Users

If you use Evite for e-invitations or social planning purposes, be aware that it announced last week that the account information for up to 10 million users has been compromised and is for sale on the Dark Web.

According to Evite, the information compromised included users’ names, usernames, passwords, dates of birth, telephone numbers, mailing addresses, and email addresses.

This information can be sold and used by cyber criminals to add to the other personal information available on the Dark Web to perpetrate identity theft. If you have an Evite account, change your password immediately and be extra cautious against the risk of becoming the victim of a phishing attack or identity theft yourself.
