Thousands of Passwords Leaked by Teen Monitoring App

UK security researcher Robert Wiggins recently found that two servers of secure monitoring app TeenSafe had reportedly exposed the account details of tens of thousands of both parents and children.

It was said that information such as email addresses, child’s device name, device unique identifier, and plaintext passwords had been leaked. However, content such as photos, messages and locations had not been compromised. The servers were immediately taken offline after the company was notified.

It was noted that the company said that parents are not required to get the consent of their children when using the app.
