Change your account recovery information as soon as you get your account back. This is critical for ALL accounts compromised, and includes everything from PINs and personal information to alternate email addresses and the answers to your secret questions.

This is to help ensure that the criminal who accessed your account cannot immediately hack it again. Cybercriminals are clever and you need to use every opportunity to protect yourself. With the information they took from you, they could access your accounts again if you do not update, change and remove all previous account recovery information.

As a final step, you can also report the incident to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre or 1-888-495-8501.

Please note: Online sexual exploitation of children must be immediately reported the Calgary Police Service. You may also report crimes of this nature anonymously to the Canadian Centre for Child Protection.
