LetMeSpy Shuts Down Amidst Data Breach After Attacker Targets Servers
LetMeSpy, a commercial spyware application that enabled users to monitor Android devices, is shutting down following a data breach that compromised the company’s servers and resulted in the deletion of a significant portion of its data. The breach prompted LetMeSpy to cease its services, leaving users with concerns over data security and privacy.
Initially catering to the surveillance market, LetMeSpy allowed consumers to purchase and utilize spyware for monitoring Android devices. However, the breach of the company’s servers has dealt a decisive blow to its operations and reputation, pushing it to announce its impending shutdown by the end of August 2023.
According to reports from TechCrunch, LetMeSpy communicated its decision to users via a notice on its website. The notice highlighted that a data security incident occurred on June 21, 2023, leading to unauthorized access to user accounts and the compromise of sensitive data, including email addresses, telephone numbers, and message content.
