Forever 21 Data Breach: What We Know So Far

Your BBB® has learned about a potential data breach that may have affected Forever 21 customers. Last Tuesday, the retailer announced that certain stores have been affected by this data breach, exposing their customers’ credit card information to potential hacks.

So if you shopped at Forever 21 between March 2017 and October 2017, your information may have been exposed to the data breach.

The retailer was recently warned by a third-party provider that a software used to encrypt and hide customer information was not functioning properly, which lead Forever 21 to issue a press release and inform the public about the potential threat.

It hasn’t been determined yet how many people may have been affected by this incident, but Forever 21 promised to keep the public informed and provide more information next week.

We will keep you updated.
