MyFitnessPal Data Breach
|Date of breach:||1 Feb 2018|
|Number of accounts:||143,606,147|
|Compromised data:||Email addresses, IP addresses, Passwords, Usernames|
|Description:||In February 2018, the diet and exercise service MyFitnessPal suffered a data breach. The incident exposed 144 million unique email addresses alongside usernames, IP addresses and passwords stored as SHA-1 and bcrypt hashes (the former for earlier accounts, the latter for newer accounts). In 2019, the data appeared listed for sale on a dark web marketplace (along with several other large breaches) and subsequently began circulating more broadly. The data was provided to HIBP by a source who requested it to be attributed to “BenjaminBlue@exploit.im“.|
