It’s been reported that some or all data of Jio users have leaked. An online website is also being circulated on whatsapp, facebook and twitter where one can verify whether their details are part of this leak.
Due to privacy and security reason, I’ve decided to not share this link here. But I’ve checked it myself, and the details are true. I checked details of several jio numbers, and basic details were part of this database leak.
Currently, no one knows how much and what data got leaked in total but Name, email ID, SIM activation date, circle of mobile number have leaked.
As of now, there is no evidence that points whether aadhar details of jio users have leaked or not. To remind you, 99% of jio users are aadhar verified and if any data related to aadhar has been compromised in this leak , then it will be a huge blow to Reliance Jio and Government of India.
“We have come across the unverified and unsubstantiated claims of the website and are investigating it. Prima facie, the data appears to be unauthentic. We want to assure our subscribers that their data is safe and maintained with highest security. Data is only shared with authorities as per their requirement. We have informed law enforcement agencies about the claims of the website and will follow through to ensure strict action is taken,” a company spokesperson said.
I’ll keep you updated around this news when I get more details.
