"On March 25, the MyFitnessPal team became aware that an unauthorized party acquired data associated with MyFitnessPal user accounts in late February 2018", reads a press release detailing the breach. According to Under Armour, the app does not collect US Social Security or driver's licence numbers from users, so that information was not exposed. Under Armour hasn't commented on how the hack was carried out but says it's now cooperating with the police and data security firms.
Under Armor says it is working with law enforcement and data security experts to investigate the data breach.
According to reports, an unknown group of cybercriminals was able to steal data tied to around 150 million MyFitnessPal accounts. However, its likely they may not be considered strong enough in ensuring tech businesses take full responsibility of their part in securing the private data of all their users.
Accessed data included usernames, emails addresses, and hashed (encrypted) passwords.
Application users have been urged to change their passwords on all MyFitnessPal accounts and to review their accounts for suspicious activity.
