BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — The deadline to sign up to get free identity protection from the Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles is coming up on Tuesday, Oct. 31.
A cyber attack that happened this summer left OMV data exposed, state officials said, after a MOVEit data breach. Louisiana residents were directed to take action after the breach possibly exposed their names, addresses, social security numbers, birthdates, height, weight, eye color, driver’s license numbers and vehicle registration numbers.
The OMV is offering residents a year of free service for LifeLock, an identity protection service, after the cyber attack. The deadline to sign up for free is Oct. 31.
“OMV encourages all Louisianans whose information was involved in this incident to actively monitor for the possibility of fraud and identity theft by reviewing your financial statements and credit reports for any unauthorized activity,” the OMV said. “If you notice any unauthorized activity, contact the relevant financial institution or the credit bureau reporting the activity immediately.”
