In the wake of recent developments regarding the leaked genetic data from 23andMe, Kepler Safe stands firm in its commitment to ensuring the utmost security and privacy for our users. Reports indicate that an additional 4.1 million stolen genetic data profiles for individuals in Great Britain and Germany have surfaced on hacking forums, following an earlier leak of data from 1 million Ashkenazi Jews.
It’s crucial to note that Kepler Safe operates independently from 23andMe and does not have any affiliation with the compromised accounts. Our security protocols remain robust, and there is no evidence of a security breach within our systems. We emphasize the importance of using strong, unique passwords and regularly updating login credentials to mitigate the risk of unauthorized access.
The leaked data from 23andMe is said to have been obtained through credential stuffing attacks, exploiting weak passwords or compromised credentials from other breaches. Kepler Safe encourages users to employ multifactor authentication (MFA) as an additional layer of security for their accounts.
As a user-focused platform committed to protecting genetic and personal information, Kepler Safe continues to monitor the situation closely. We assure our users that their privacy and security are of paramount importance, and we remain dedicated to implementing the highest standards of protection.
In light of these incidents, we encourage all users to review and enhance their account security measures. Kepler Safe remains vigilant in staying ahead of potential threats and is actively working to fortify our systems against evolving cyber risks.
For any concerns or inquiries regarding your Kepler Safe account, please contact our customer support team. We appreciate your trust and remain steadfast in our commitment to providing a secure environment for your genetic data.
