Robinhood Data Breach Exposes 5M Email Addresses, Personal Data


Stock trading app Robinhood has announced that a data breach last week exposed the personal data and email addresses of 5 million users.

The company says a customer support employee was "tricked" into giving the hacker full access to its systems last Wednesday. The hacker got full names and email addresses, but Robinhood says no social security numbers or payment details were compromised.

No users suffered any financial losses, either.

Robinhood says it is contacting affected customers directly. If you have any questions, Robinhood asks you to visit the “Account Security” portion of its “Help Center” for info on keeping your data safe.
