Why would anyone want to breach @MyFitnessPal? You really want to look at a chart of my weight fluctuating and how much ice cream I lied about eating? Go for it, Susan. #myfitnesspal #singlegirlproblems

The company said the stolen data includes user names, scrambled passwords and email addresses. The company confirmed payment card details were not compromised.
I'm not sure if I'm more concerned about #myfitnesspal 's data breach because someone could get my email info, or the fact that they'll know how many calories I consume. #databreach

Under Armour purchased the popular diet and fitness app in 2015 for $475 million. The company said they are working with law enforcement and data security firms and said that users will be required to change their password when logging into the app, urging users to do so immediately.
