Cyber security at Telstra and data privacy
Taking charge of your online security
Industry-leading cyber security measures
Blocking millions of cyber threats every day
Our experts help block millions of threats like scams and malicious calls, texts and content, all in a day’s work.
Detecting SIM swap fraud
If a scammer gains access to enough personal information, they could request a new SIM in your name and take control of your mobile number. By detecting SIM swaps, we can help prevent fraud.
Bolstered Telstra account security
Helping ensure data stays private
We delete ID scans after 6 months
We’ll sometimes need to ask you to scan ID documents to check your identity. To help protect your privacy, we now keep those scans for only six months, down from two years.
You can access personal information we hold about you
You can find most of the personal information we hold about you through My Telstra and on your bills, or you can request access to personal information as well as call, SMS and data usage sessions.
