Rightly's guide to changing your address

Make sure you've updated all of the key organisations, and remove your old address from companies to stay on top of your digital footprint.

Changing your address doesn't have to be complicated

Once you've worked out who you need to inform of your move, simply set up a redirect with Royal Mail and make sure that you update your key documentation.

In the process of updating your address, you may come across companies that have your information but no longer need it. It's important to delete your information from these companies to reduce your risk of hacks, scams and spam. To reduce the amount of information about you online, clean up your digital footprint today.
