Last August, Pôle emploi was the victim of a large-scale cyberattack, potentially affecting millions of people. If you were registered with Pôle emploi in February 2022 or if your registration ended less than a year ago, your personal data may have been compromised. This security breach came after an attack targeting one of the agency’s suppliers, Majorel. The stolen data, including sensitive information such as first and last names, job seeker status and social security numbers, was distributed online. Pôle emploi is working to contact victims of this cyberattack individually, with nearly 4 million emails sent to notify those affected.

In 2024, Pôle emploi will undertake a major transformation by becoming France Travail, scheduled for January 1, 2024.
