Data of Samsung Users Leaked, Company Issued Important Warning
Samsung has issued a warning to its customers regarding a massive data breach that occurred on November 13. The tech giant identified unauthorized access through an application used by the company, potentially exposing private information.
The affected individuals are those who made purchases on Samsung UK’s web store between July 1, 2019, and June 30, 2020. Samsung cautions that personal data, including names, addresses, phone numbers, and emails, may have been leaked as a result of this breach.
However, Samsung has confirmed that payment details and other financial information remain unaffected.
In a statement to Bleeping Computer, Samsung clarified, “No financial data, such as bank or credit card details, or customer passwords, were impacted. The incident is limited to the UK and does not affect US customers, employees, or retailer data.”
Apple iPhone Users Warned of App Deletion Setting
On a separate note, Apple iPhone users are being warned about a potentially overlooked setting that could lead to the deletion of apps from their devices.
While some iOS users are familiar with the app uninstall feature in Settings, not everyone may realize that there’s an additional setting enabling automatic deletion of unused apps.
To check and restore offloaded apps, users can navigate to Settings > General > iPhone Storage, identify apps with an iCloud icon, and reinstall them if desired.
To prevent automatic app offloading, users can disable this functionality by going to Settings > App Store and toggling the Offload Unused Apps switch to off.
It’s crucial for users to stay informed and take necessary precautions to safeguard their digital privacy.Facebook or follow us on Twitter and Instagram. Subscribe us on Telegram and never miss a update!
