Three years ago, survey company Typeform reported that it had been the victim of a hack, causing a breach of the information it stored for its customers. Becoming aware of the issue in late June, Typeform is understood to have found that a hacker had been able to steal from its backup of personal data. Those who were affected by data exposure due to the incident may be able to recover compensation as part of our Typeform data breach claim group action.
No one should be put in the position of having their data made vulnerable to unauthorised access and potential criminal misuse, so organisations must do everything in their power to safeguard the information that they hold. Where companies fail to protect personal data, this can constitute a breach of data protection law, and those affected can be eligible to make a compensation claim.
Anyone who was notified of their involvement in the Typeform incident can come to us for expert advice on their potential eligibility for a claim. We have been helping a number of others for a while now and claimants can be eligible for No Win, No Fee legal representation.
The impact of the Typeform data breach
On 27th June 2018, Typeform established that its private data stores had been hacked by an external third party, potentially causing thousands of records to be compromised. The incident was made more complicated by the nature of Typeform’s business. As a software provider for business customers, many companies conduct surveys and quizzes via Typeform’s solution, meaning that a wealth of these companies’ customers may also have had their information compromised.
Monzo, the online bank, reported that as many as 20,000 of its customers may have been affected by the incident, with the exposed data potentially including email addresses, Twitter handles and postcodes. Unsurprisingly, Monzo terminated its relationship with Typeform following the breach.

With a number of distinct companies affected by the Typeform data breach, we are here to establish accountability in this case for the claimants that we represent. However, it does not matter which company you completed a survey for; as long as your data was among the results collected prior to 3rd May 2018, you could be eligible to make a Typeform data breach claim.
As a result of the data breach, you may have suffered distress, which can be taken into account when making your Typeform data breach claim.
