For some individuals, this data breach event included the Proof of Age number used when creating their Optus account.

Risk

The exposure of a Proof of Age number can leave you open to SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) swaps.

Unauthorised access to financial accounts can occur where the Proof of Age is used as a form of verification.

New financial accounts (debit accounts, credit cards, personal loans) can be created and this can extend to By-Now-Pay-Later (BNPL) products.

With your Proof of Age details scammers can gain access to your MyGov, ATO and other general accounts, establish new utility accounts and apply for rental properties.
