Take Action: Were You Exposed By AOL's Data Leak?

If you are an AOL member, use our Action Center to contact AOL and find out whether you were one of the AOL customers whose search data was publicly disclosed. By voicing your concerns now, you can make sure AOL works to prevent another damaging data leak from happening again.

Regardless of whether you're an AOL user, send a link to the Action Center (http://action.eff.org/aolsearch) to friends and family who use AOL. We've also posted sample tell-a-friend letter text and blog buttons (like the one below) here.
