TeenSafe has leaked data from thousands of account holders – 05/22/18


Researchers have stumbled across two of TeenSafe‘s servers containing databases that list parent emails, their child’s Apple ID email address and password, device names and unique identifiers in plain text. Because the information isn’t encrypted, anyone who gains access to the server can read the information.

Once TeenSafe was notified of the leak, the servers were taken off line.  However, if you are a user of TeenSafe, you should change your password and have your child change their Apple ID password.  Of course, if you have reused passwords you will also have to change the password for every account that uses the same password. Just another reminder to use a unique password for every account.
