Google has reported another data breach affecting users of its social media platform Google+, and this time the numbers are a lot bigger.
Google had reported that a security flaw had allowed hackers to access 500,000 users’ passwords and other sensitive information. Now the company says that due to a flaw in a recent update, account information marked as private was available for developers with Google+ APIs to access.
The data breach is similar to a flaw that allowed Cambridge Analytica to improperly access Facebook user data, but Google says there is no evidence any developers downloaded the data.
For anyone who wants to delete their Goggle+ account immediately, Google has created a handy guide. Company execs wrote in a blog post that it would shut down all Google+ activities within 90 days.
