myfitnesspal 2018 breach is now on the dark web

Featured Posts

Bloody hooker

I just happen to check my email, and saw that my credit card company sent me an email saying that my information was detected on a suspicious website. When I checked my credit report, it said that my email was found on the dark web due to the 2018 myfitnesspal data breach. I am completely scared. :ohno: The only reason I had an account there in the first place was due to my high school psychology class in 2014. My teacher wanted us to keep track of what we ate for a week or two.

If anyone had an account with the company before February 2018, look into it to make sure that your info hasn’t ended up there yet.

Here is an article to read more about it:

This mutual gaze was a “longing to touch” or a "pre-coitus" stare.

I am sorry to hear. What steps have you done for safety? I suppose you already got new CC by now?

When I originally found out about the breach some months ago I didn’t think too much about it. I need to change my twitter handle, because it has part of my email (idk why). As for the CC, I don’t have it anymore, but somehow still have access to the credit report section.

Hmm :oprah:

Oh, change your e-mail passwords too, and put it on two steps verification. I had someone trying to break into my e-mail once before, lucky  I put it all on two steps, so I am aware someone trying to get it cos I got text for OTP numbers. :diane:

That's why I don't do sports :vegas: . On a serious note, immediately change all the data related to that breach, especially passwords. You better delete the account on that website, too. I hope it all goes well for you :diane: .

Since this is somewhat on topic, littlemonsters.com had a breach way back too and a lot of emails have been exposed as well. It's best to always have a different password for everything you use

If you don't have the CC anymore then don't worry about it, as long as that account is closed they can't do anything with the information. You don't need to change your Twitter handle either, just change the password and change the e-mail address linking to it. If it only has part of the e-mail don't worry about it either.

And with that said, y'all should use a password manager! They store and generate strong passwords + fill forms up for you. There's lots of free ones out there, like LastPass and Dashlane.

Everyone should do this for their accounts, whenever possible. It's even more secure if an authenticator app manages the OTP.  I think GGD should implement it.

You used a credit card for the premium version of a free app, for a psychology class?

*insert brain joke*
