Names, email addresses and phone numbers have been obtained, and the company urges users to take urgent steps to protect their cellphone numbers ...
Per-user, per-service access tokens of this sort are a great idea (notably, this system means you never have to share your actual passwords with a third party), as long as the company holding the tokens doesn't let crooks wander in and steal them.
The stolen data comprised mostly of user names and email addresses. Some 4.7 million user accounts had a phone number attached.
The startup, whose service plugs into users' social media accounts to resurface posts and photos they may have forgotten about, says it discovered the attack while it was in progress, at 2:04 US Eastern Time on July 4, and was able to shut it down two hours, 19 minutes later - albeit, not before millions of people's data had been breached.
"Tokens" provided by social media profiles to Timehop for gaining access to posts and images were also taken.
"We have deactivated these keys so they can no longer be used by anyone", the company said.

If you're a Timehop user and you want the app to keep on working, you'll have to reconnect it to the various services of your choice.
There was a "short time window during which it was theoretically possible for unauthorised users to access those posts" but there is "no evidence that this actually happened", according to the blog post. Some fraudsters have begun to immediately discount secure phones altogether. For folks on T-Mobile and any other carrier, call customer service and ask for help with restricting the portability of your number.
TimeHop has now invalidated all API tokens and produced one of the most comprehensive security bulletins we've ever seen with a wealth of information including what the implications are under GDPR - or more specifically, that it's not entirely clear.
Timehop stressed that private messages, financial data, social media content, and Timehop data were compromised.
Because Timehop is a free service, no payment information was affected by the data breach.
It can't be as almost-comforting on the matter of purloined phone numbers, advising that for those who shared such data with the company "It is recommended that you take additional security precautions with your cellular provider to ensure that your number cannot be ported". Back in December, an unauthorized person used an admin's credentials to log into Timehop's cloud computing servers and create a new admin account. Still, the company's actions might frustrate some users since it requires they give Timehop access to their accounts again. "We have no evidence that any accounts were accessed without authorization".
