Next steps

Keep an eye on account activity

Check your online account activity regularly over the next few weeks for unexpected transactions. Once you suspect unauthorized activity, contact us immediately by calling 800-544-6666 and we will help you close the affected accounts and open new ones.

Update your antivirus software

Run an antivirus scan on your system to check that your computer is not infected with a virus. Make sure that your system and anti-virus software are up-to-date.

Change all your passwords

Change your account password and security questions immediately. Do this for your Fidelity account, your email accounts, and other online accounts.

Request a fraud alert be put on your file

Contact one of the three major credit bureaus and ask them to place a fraud alert on your file. With a fraud alert on your credit file, financial institutions and credit card companies will be required to contact you before opening any new accounts in your name.
