Has Your Data Been Hacked Recently? Find Out With This Handy Quiz

It seems like we can’t go a month without a revelation about some enormous security breach that compromised the personal information of millions of people. The New York Times has a nifty quiz that will quickly tell you whether your personal information was involved.

The quiz runs you through all of the recent breaches that have happened, from the fresh Federal Office of Personnel Management hack to the infamous Anthem Health Care and Target breaches. It asks you what services and organizations you interacted with, and when the contact happened. A terrifying box on the left tallies up just how often each type of information was compromised.


The good news is that companies and organizations are legally obligated to take action when your data is compromised. The good news is that this doesn’t automatically mean your identity is going to get stolen—just keep an eye on your credit report, OK?
