Under Armour’s digital security is out of shape.  
The athletic apparel company today announced a massive data breach affecting at least 150 million users of its food and nutrition app MyFitnessPal. 

“On March 25, the MyFitnessPal team became aware that an unauthorized party acquired data associated with MyFitnessPal user accounts in late February 2018,” reads a press release detailing the breach. “The investigation indicates that the affected information included usernames, email addresses, and hashed passwords – the majority with the hashing function called bcrypt used to secure passwords.”
The fact that the passwords were hashed is good news to those affected, as it suggests that their accounts may not have been immediately compromised following the breach. Still, anyone who has used the MyFitnessPal should absolutely change their password — a recommendation that Under Armour is making as well. 
There is one other bit of good news: It looks like social security numbers and credit cards were not stolen in the digital heist. 
“The affected data did not include government-issued identifiers (such as Social Security numbers and driver’s license numbers), which the company does not collect from users,” explained the press release. “Payment card data was also not affected because it is collected and processed separately.”
At present, the company says it is unaware of who may have stolen this data.
