Fitness app used by millions is hacked
MORE than 150 million user accounts of popular diet and fitness app Myfitnesspal have been hacked, its owners said.
US sportswear brand Under Armour, the app’s owners, said it first became aware of the security breach on March 25 and began informing users four days later.
It said the data had been stolen in late February and that email addresses and passwords had been accessed but that payment details were unaffected because they are processed separately.
The Maryland-based company said it was working with data security firms and law enforcement agencies to investigate the breach and urged all users to change their passwords.
Under Armour added: “We do not know the identity of the unauthorised party. Our investigation is ongoing.”
The app allows customers to monitor their calorie intake and measure it against the amount of exercise they do.
