Information for Optus customers

DoT has put in place measures to protect customers affected by the Optus data breach.

Replacing a driverís licence card is the quickest way for you to upgrade your protection to avoid being a victim of identity or financial crimes. An old licence card cannot be used by others for fraudulent activities online, as it will not validate in a Document Verification Service check.

For more information, visit the Optus data breach page.
