DALLAS-If privacy is important to you, you might want to listen up.

JP Morgan Chase, the largest bank in America, announced a cyber-attack that compromised 76 million households and seven million small businesses this summer.

So if you bank with Chase, here's what was swiped: your name, address, phone number and E-mail address. According to Chase, sensitive information like account and social security numbers were not lifted from their records.

Although customers reportedly haven't lost any money over the breach, we wanted to know, do these techie thefts get you, well, hacked?

"I think that it’s pretty scary that at times you can't rely on banks," said Willie Golatt.

"It is scary because places like Target, places like Home Depot have been breached in the last year and identity theft is a very scary thing in this day and age," said Eugene Tagle.

According to the Better Business Bureau, you can protect yourself by monitoring your accounts closely, changing your password and signing up for text alerts.

In a time when privacy isn't so private, you can never be too careful.
