How it happened: OXO International has stated that between June 9, 2017 – November 28, 2017, June 8, 2018 – June 9, 2018, and July 20, 2018 – October 16, 2018, their servers were compromised to try and steal customer’s customer and payment information.

For those affected, OXO is offering its customers free credit monitoring services through Kroll. To access this free service, you will need a member ID that will be sent to customers via the OXO notification emails.
