Gay dating app Manhunt, with over 6 million users, has confirmed that a data breach hit it in February of this year. In a statement to the Washington state attorney general’s office, Manhunt said a hacker had “gained access to a database that stored account credentials for Manhunt users.” The hacker had then “downloaded the usernames, email addresses, and passwords for a subset of our users in early February 2021.”
An attorney representing Manhunt told TechCrunch that 11% of users were impacted by the breach, which means that at least 600,000 user accounts have been affected by this breach.
If you are a user of Manhunt, I suggest you do the following:
- Change your password straight away
- Delete any personal information from your account and maybe consider closing it down altogether?
- If you are using the same password on any other site, make sure you change it straight away to avoid a credential stuffing attack.
Let me know if you need any assistance, and have a great rest of your day.
All the best,
