If you are a Revolut user, your private data could be at risk.

The attackers had access to the data of more than 50,000 users

The Lithuanian State Data Protection Inspectorate was informed about the security breach, as that is the country where the company is licensed to operate as a bank. In the report, it is specified that +50150 Revolut customers* have been affected by the attack.

In a statement issued by Revolut, it is indicated that the attack was immediately identified and isolated, in order to mitigate its impact. After knowing the scope of the threat, we proceeded to contact all affected users via email. In this sense, Revolut explains that those users who have not been contacted, have not been victims of this attack and your data remains safe.

Regarding the information obtained by the attackers, Revolut indicates that the following information has been accessed:

  • Email addresses
  • Complete names
  • postal addresses
  • Telephone numbers
  • Limited payment card data
  • Account data

Other data, such as passwords, PINs, card details or the available balance in your accounts have not been exposedand of course the customer money is not in danger.

Other than that, some Revolut users were able to find inappropriate messages spread across different parts of the Revolut app on their mobiles:
