Wyze data leak may have exposed personal data of millions of users

Security camera startup Wyze has confirmed it suffered a data leak this month that may have left the personal information of millions of its customers exposed on the internet. No passwords or financial information were exposed, but email addresses, Wi-Fi network IDs and body metrics were left unprotected from Dec. 4 through Dec. 26, the company said Friday.

More than 2.4 million Wyze customers were affected by the leak, according to cybersecurity firm Twelve Security, which first reported on the leak

“We are still looking into this event to figure out why and how this happened,” he wrote.

In an update Sunday, Song said Wyze discovered a second unprotected database during its investigation of the data leak. It’s unclear what information was stored in this database, but Song said passwords and personal financial data weren’t included.
