June 2018 Data Breach

Typeform is an online service that makes it easy for anyone to add attractive cutesy online surveys to their websites. It’s certainly a neat online app, making it simple to build an attractive survey or form and embed it on your site.  Typeform customers are believed to include Adobe, Airbnb, Apple, BBC, Facebook, Forbes, Freshdesk, HubSpot, Indiegogo, Trello, and Uber amongst many others.

Unfortunately, at the end of last week, Typeform admitted that it had suffered a data breach. The results accessed were from a partial backup dated May 3rd, 2018. As a result, all data collected since May 3rd 2018 are not compromised. The data stolen includes names, email addresses, and other pieces of information entered by users via Typeform forms.

They are sharing awareness to impacted users as follows:

On June 27, 2018, our engineering team became aware that an unknown third party gained access to our server and downloaded certain information. As a result of this breach, some data was compromised. We responded immediately and fixed the source of the breach to prevent any further intrusion.
