Bella Thorne is getting proactive to avoid another security breach after her private information was exposed, and she's now working with a cyber security company.

Thorne has teamed up with IDIQ, which was formed by the company that started the IdentityIQ brand. They offer a ton of identity and credit-related security measures.

Last month, Thorne went on social media and released nude photographs after claiming she was targeted by a hacker who threatened to expose her private moments.

The 21-year-old actress took things in to her own hands and said, "For the last 24 hours I have been threatened with my own nudes,” she wrote in a message posted on June 15. “I feel gross, I feel watched, I feel someone has taken something from me."

After the ordeal, the security company reached out to Thorne and offered to get her hooked up with their services.

After getting the security services, Thorne said, "I am so grateful for IdentityIQ for reaching out to me in the wake of all this and helping my team to be sure that this won't happen again."

She is grateful that if something does compromise her security, "they are alerted and can act quickly."

We're told Thorne now has premier credit monitoring and identity theft protection, which includes daily monitoring along with credit score delivery, dark web monitoring, Social Security number use alerts, identity theft restoration and identity theft insurance.

Scott Hermann, co-owner and CEO of IDIQ, said credit and identity theft monitoring is essential for everyone, but especially for a celebrity such as Thorne, whose personal information is some of the most vulnerable, and possibly damaging.

"As someone in the public eye, Bella and other stars already have a lot of their information out in the open, making them a prime target for hackers and identity thieves," Hermann said.
