Under Armour, a footwear, sports, and casual apparel company, has announced that data from 150 million users of its MyFitnessPal diet and fitness app was compromised in February.

“On March 25, the MyFitnessPal team became aware that an unauthorized party acquired data associated with MyFitnessPal user accounts in late February 2018,” the company wrote in a statement. “The company quickly took steps to determine the nature and scope of the issue and to alert the MyFitnessPal community of the incident.”

The stolen data includes account usernames, email addresses and scrambled passwords for the MyFitnessPal mobile app and website. Social Security numbers, drivers’ license numbers and payment card data were not compromised, according to company officials.

Officials added the investigation is ongoing, but so far approximately 150 million user accounts were affected by the breach, and they do not the identity of the unauthorized party.

MyFitnessPal users are being encouraged to change their passwords immediately, as well as to review their accounts for suspicious activity. Notices were also sent to MyFitnessPal via in-app alerts and emails.

“We continue to monitor for suspicious activity and to coordinate with law enforcement authorities,” Under Armour officials said. “We continue to make enhancements to our systems to detect and prevent unauthorized access to user information.”
