MyFitnessPal parent company Under Armour today announced that MyFitnessPal has been the victim of a hacking incident, which has seen personal details of approximately 150 million user accounts accessed in a data breach.
MyFitnessPal is a popular health and fitness iOS app and website that's used by many iPhone and iPad owners, and it is consistently among the top Health and Fitness apps in the App Store.
The breach, which happened in late February, included usernames, emails, and encrypted passwords. Credit card numbers from paying customers were not accessed.
Under Armor has already been sending emails and in-app messages to its customers who were affected by the breach. The company says it is working with "leading data security firms" to assist in its investigation.
MyFitnessPal users will be required to change their passwords.

"The affected data did not include government-issued identifiers (such as Social Security numbers and driver's license numbers) because we don't collect that information from users. Payment card data was not affected because it is collected and processed separately."
