What Happened?

On December 18, 2023, Homeaglow detected suspicious activity involving an abnormally high volume of login attempts to user accounts. Subsequent investigations revealed that an unauthorized party was using external credentials to access Homeaglow accounts. Although there is no definitive evidence that the credentials came from Homeaglow's systems, the breach potentially exposed personal information, including Social Security Numbers.

This incident was made public on March 22, 2024, and Homeaglow has since disclosed the breach to the Attorney General's office in Maine. You can find the full disclosure on the Maine Attorney General's website.

A total of 1,556 individuals across the United States have been affected, with 2 of those being Maine residents. Homeaglow began notifying consumers of the breach on March 22, 2024, through written notice.
