First ‘Strava’, Now ‘Under Armour’ — I Suspect ALL Fitness Tracker Apps Are Vulnerable & Probably Already Compromised!

Click to ENLARGE. Google ‘Under Armour’ for more.


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.

What makes you think that Garmin and Fitbit has NOT been compromised? They very well could be. They either have not found or have not got around to telling us.

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.

This Is Why I Do NOT Share My Fitness Tracking Data Or Use Strava.

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.
