An important update about your MyFitnessPal account

Recently, we learned of reports of MyFitnessPal users receiving spam at the email address tied to their MyFitnessPal account. We take security and privacy very seriously and as a result, we immediately formed a security task force and hired a professional security firm to conduct a thorough investigation to see whether our systems had been breached.

As of today, here’s what our investigation has yielded: we did not find any evidence that passwords or other personal information were compromised. However, we did find a way through which someone could have obtained user email addresses. We worked quickly to fix the issue, and put several additional security measures in place to help prevent similar incidents in the future. We will continue to be vigilant to protect your information.

As always, please be careful about responding to email communications from people claiming to be employees of MyFitnessPal. In particular, remember that no MyFitnessPal employee will ever ask you for your password or other sensitive information. If you wish to change your MyFitnessPal password, you may easily do so by following these instructions.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our security team at security@myfitnesspal.com.

Please, details on how someone could have (did) obtain user email addresses. Or tell Brian Krebs and he'll let everyone know.

Yeah and how does that help me from all the spam I received today at my unique mfp email?

I too have a unique email address used only for your service. Please don't say you take things seriously and not be open with people who trust your service. If you hired a "professional security firm" to conduct a thorough investigation please name the firm so we as customers can make our own judgement as to the reputation of the company. Further, in the interest of good faith, once the exposures you found and fixed the issue and added additional controls you should explain were a the issue was and how you fixed it. You should also tell us what you are doing on a proactive basis to manage the security of your customers data.... ie. are you now encrypting data at rest? We all await your response.

I too have a unique email address only used for this site and have received numerous spam emails since I signed up here several years ago. I agree with anonymous two posts above this one. Be open about the firm you used, what you found, and how you fixed it, because from what I see, you haven't really fixed anything but your image.

How about get rid of this crap from PlasaNet which freezes my ap (thought was real email from fitnesspal or one of my buddies) when clicked.

Be more selective of who you sell adspace too. Fitness pal is now just another junk ap.

Thank you for your miracle Doctor Osemu Okpamen

This article is dedicated to the Doctor Osemu Okpamen. I have been married with my wife for 5 years and recently she broke up with me and it hurt me deeply when she told me to leave her alone and that she does not love me anymore when i was always faithful and honest to her. I tried all the ways to get her back buying her what she wants like i always did and she still left me heart broken and she even has a new boyfriend which destroyed me even more until a friend of mine from high school directed me to this genuine spell Doctor called Osemu Okpamen. This man changed my life completely. I followed everything he told me to do and my wife came back begging for me back. I was stunned everything happened exactly like he told me. I had faith in everything he told me and everything was true. Also he was there every moment until i got my happiness back and he also provides spells that cures any diseases & sickness.

I’m extremely happy that my broken Marriage has been fixed…
"We recently made up, even though it was difficult. It's been more than a month now, and everything feels like it’s returned to normal. He has begun to treat me better, and it’s been a healing process for both of us. The nightmare that had lasted for almost 2 years before we broke up is finally over. It’s like we fell in love all over again! We’ve both put the past behind us, and are trying to move forward – and for the first time in a long time, the future looks a lot brighter.
I can’t express in words how grateful I am Dr Unity! It’s like we’ve finally rediscovered those things about each other that made us fall in love in the first place. All of the worrying and stress has simply vanished. Thank you Dr Unity for saving my broken Marriage and brought my husband back to me!".
Me and my husband are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity. If you have any problem contact Dr.Unity now and i guarantee you that he will help you.Email him at: Unityspelltemple@gmail.com ,you can also call him or add him on whats-app: +2348071622464.

Excited my life is back My husband and I have been together for almost 11 years in October. The way we met wasn’t the best way since we both had relationships. We ended our relationships to be together (or so I thought we BOTH did). As soon as I ended up pregnant with our first baby, I find out he was cheating with his EX! My world went upside down. It was very hard for me since I was pregnant and hurt. Over the years I just kept forgiving him over and over again of not only multiple affairs, but of his accusations of me being unfaithful and disrespecting me. We now have 3 kids and I just completely felt neglected and felt low of myself. I had my own affair… It has not been easy for BOTH of us to overcome. Somehow over the last few weeks we have been working together to move on. We are now moving out of state. I love my husband and I am positive he loves me. I am going to try and show him this approach. Somehow we were already doing it! We have a better communication than we’ve had in years! We are learning how to speak calmly out feelings and concerns. It hasn’t been peachy, but I can see that we both are starting to respect eachother. We care for each other’s feelings. We have US a main priority. We aren’t taking counseling, but somehow we see that little by little we seem more comfortable with eachother. Sometimes we may notice how good it is going and may step back, but helping eachother out by holding and saying it’s ok to be happy again. I love my family. and my husband and i need to keep my marriage save with him from other women so i have to seek for a love spell to keep our marriage stronger so i contacted Dr happy who help me to keep my marriage save and secure from other women am very happy today coz my husband love me more and more like ever before, we are living as one big family again bless Dr happy for what he did to me and my husband if you need help contact him too he is real and 100% guarantee ok so email him at : happylovespell2@gmail.com call +2348133873774 about his service and web site: http://happyspelltemple.webs.com/
