Based on the number of records, this marks one of the top 5 data breaches of all time, and the largest one in 2018 so far.
If you are a MyFitnessPal user, change your password now. If you share that password in other apps or websites, changes those as well.
Personal details of about 150 million users of the MyFitnessPal app were compromised in one of the biggest hacks in history, its owner has confirmed. US sportswear brand Under Armour said user names, email addresses and scrambled passwords were among the stolen data. However, payment card data was not affected. It urged customers to change their passwords immediately. The company said on Thursday that the accounts were compromised in February, sending shares of the company down 3% in after-hours trade. The breach was not discovered until 25 March and users were informed four days later. Under Armour said: “We do not know the identity of the unauthorised party. Our investigation into this matter is ongoing.”
