H/T to Wandering Aramean
Over the holiday, I noticed a few folks on twitter mentioning that their accounts were locked out. Of course, my first response was to check mine (because, for one reason or another, I still have miles there, even though they’re approaching skypesos status). Luckily mine was good, but, it appears that United is notifying some of their members of the security breach.
I’m posting this without another “linkable” source, but I have confidence based on what I’ve seen on twitter that this is legit (plus Seth doesn’t cry wolf). I’m not sure if the lack of coverage is United successfully downplaying things, or it being holiday week. Regardless, this is important enough to get out there.
All that said – it wouldn’t hurt to check your United MileagePlus account… Maybe even take a screenshot of how many miles you have, it never hurts.
