  • At LastPass, we’re committed to your security. We wanted to provide our LastPass community with the most up-to-date information on the Under Armour data breach to help you protect your personal information. This breach does not affect your LastPass account.

    On Thursday, Under Armour Inc. announced that 150 million accounts from it’s subsidiary, MyFitnessPal, were compromised. The breach included user names, email addresses, and hashed passwords. (Hashing is a mathematical function that converts an original string of data into a seemingly random string of characters.) Driver’s license numbers and payment cards were not comprised. Under Armour has created a Frequently Asked Questions page to help consumers understand what happened.

    To further protect yourself from future incidents, you should:

    1. Use a unique password for each online account.
    2. Consider passphrases for even stronger passwords.
    3. Enable two-factor authentication for added security.
    4. Be mindful of potential phishing attacks.
    5. Continue using a password manager, like LastPass, to help protect your identity.
