MyFitnessPal has 150 million email addresses & passwords stolen

On March 25, the MyFitnessPal team became aware that an unauthorized party acquired data associated with MyFitnessPal user accounts in late February 2018.

Under Armour is working with leading data security firms to assist in its investigation, and also coordinating with law enforcement authorities. The investigation indicates that the affected information included usernames, email addresses, and hashed passwords – the majority with the hashing function called bcrypt used to secure passwords.

Another day, another data breach.

If you’re a MyFitnessPal user you should’ve already received an email about the breach. The app will also now force you to change your password.

If you use the same password anywhere else…

  1. You definitely shouldn’t
  2. Change that too – and make it something completely different.
  3. Install a password manager like LastPass or 1Password
