Digital and Population Data Services Agency information: Have you been a victim of identity theft or personal data leak? The Suomi.fi Web Service now provides all the advice you need in one place

The Digital and Population Data Services Agency has launched a new information and service package in the Suomi.fi Web Service to help citizens find out what to do if they suspect that their personal data has ended up in the wrong hands.

The service also allows the Digital and Population Data Services Agency to manage key non-disclosures related to cases of data leak. These include a non-disclosure of personal information in the Population Information System and an address change protection (prevent a notification of move). Strong identification using online banking IDs, a mobile certificate, or an ID card and the Finnish Authenticator app is always needed before you can manage non-disclosures.

The service also provides guidance and instructions on how the user can manage non-disclosures that are the responsibility of other actors. These include a credit ban and a prohibition of registration to the Finnish Trade Register, the Finnish Register of Associations or the Finnish Register of Foundations.
