American Airlines has been warning AAdvantage members that were sent “Year-In-Review” promotional emails that encourage their stats to be shared on social media that they might have been sharing a little more than that.
The issue with sharing the information on social media was that the AAdvantage member number and email number associated with the account were both exposed too.
You can see the email that AA has sent to affected members above.
When we use emails and information that readers forward us, we are always very careful that we remove any identifiable information that is sometimes embedded in the links.
You should always be very careful when you share one of these review-emails that programs seem to be sending out at the moment on any public platform.
It seems that American Airlines is allowing affected members to change their AAdvantage number as a result.
