First ‘Strava’, Now ‘Under Armour’ — I Suspect ALL Fitness Tracker Apps Are Vulnerable & Probably Already Compromised!
So the ‘Under Armour‘ breach, impacting 150 million users (and you read that right) took place in mid-February 2018 and we heard about it now.
I am kind of resigned that all my data online is open to compromise and that this is now a fact of life.
I don’t think I have that much ‘secret’ at either Garmin or Fitbit. Following Equifax and Anthem ‘they’ already have my date-of-birth etc. I am NOT that fussed about my e-mail. That is available on the Internet.
But, I am giving you a heads up.
Just assume that any and all Fitness Tracker APPs you use are UNSAFE.
As soon as you start sharing your fitness data your privacy is shot.
While I am not that much of a private person, I prefer people not to know where I am — when I am out and about.
I don’t carry a ‘cell’ with me when I run. So, there is absolutely no way that my GPS data can get to the ‘cloud’ in real time.
But, I am going to checkout this ‘heatmap’. There can’t be too many fitness trackers out in the boonies where I live.
