In response to the data breach, AllCare Pharmacy took immediate action to secure its network and prevent further unauthorized access.

The FBI was notified, and AllCare has been cooperating with their investigation. To further protect customers, AllCare Pharmacy has implemented additional monitoring tools and continues to upgrade its security systems.

To support those potentially affected, AllCare Pharmacy is offering complimentary credit and identity theft monitoring services through Identity Force, a TransUnion company.

Steps to Take if You Are Affected

If you believe your information may have been compromised in this breach, it is crucial to act promptly to protect yourself from potential identity theft:

  1. Enroll in Credit Monitoring: Take advantage of the free services offered by AllCare Pharmacy to stay informed of any changes to your credit report.
  2. Monitor Your Accounts: Keep an eye on your financial accounts for any unauthorized transactions or changes. Report any suspicious activity to your financial institution immediately.
  3. Place Fraud Alerts: Contact one of the major credit bureaus (Equifax, Experian, or TransUnion) to request a fraud alert on your credit report. This makes it harder for identity thieves to open accounts in your name.
  4. Consider a Credit Freeze: A more severe option than a fraud alert, a credit freeze prevents creditors from accessing your credit report entirely, which stops new accounts from being opened in your name.
  5. Review Your Credit Reports: Obtain a free copy of your credit report from each of the three major credit reporting agencies at Annual Credit Report. Check for any accounts or transactions you do not recognize.
  6. File a Report: If you suspect identity theft, file a report with your local law enforcement or the Federal Trade Commission at IdentityTheft.gov.
