Company Data Breach History
This is not the first data breach for Mobifriends.com. In 2020, the app suffered a similar data breach, resulting in the compromise of 3.5 million user records. The company reportedly improved its security measures after the 2020 breach, but it appears that these measures were not enough to prevent the 2023 breach.
