How was data breached at Dubsmash?

Video messaging app Dubsmash experienced a large-scale data breach in December 2018 when 161.5 million user records were stolen by an unidentified hacker. The hacker then placed the records for sale on the dark web in early 2019 alongside five other victims of a data breach by the same hacker. Entire member databases were put up for sale to spammers and others who wanted access to personal records. When the hack occurred Dubsmash reported that email addresses and passwords were taken but nothing more serious like credit card numbers or addresses.

Can I make a data breach claim against Dubsmash?

If you are one of the 161.5 million users whose data was part of the hack at Dubsmash you could be entitled to receive data breach compensation.

We can put you in touch with expert data breach solicitors who are putting together a collective group claim that will bring together the large number of Dubsmash customers. If you are a Dubsmash user and received notification about involvement in the data breach, you are eligible to join our group claim.

Compensation is payable for any distress caused by the data breach which could have left you open to the risk of fraudulent activity.

Dubsmash users were encouraged to change their passwords and check their accounts for any unusual activity following the breach. There were no reports on what caused the breach or how the hacker was able to access the system. However, the consistent increase in monthly viewers suggests that consumer trust has recovered for Dubsmash after the breach.

Frequently Asked Questions

Any website or app users have the right to expect that any personal or financial data that they have shared with an organisation, such as Dubsmash, is securely stored and handled. When data protection standards have fallen short, and in this case a hack has enabled unauthorised access to your personal data, you can make a Dubsmash data breach claim for compensation.

It is known that at least one of the affected databases was purchased from the dark web in 2019 which was for sale for $1,976 in bitcoin at the time. The buyer was likely to be a spammer or phisher looking for new people to target. The low sale price for the consumer data on the dark web undersells the significant impact of data breaches on consumers. Cybersecurity professionals for any company that handles personal information should keep in mind the priceless value of privacy when securing digital assets.

If you think you may have a valid Dubsmash data breach claim then get in touch with us and we will put you in touch with data breach experts who will make enquiries regarding your claim and confirm whether or not you have a case worth pursuing.

We can put you in touch with legal experts who are putting together a group claim whereby the thousands of customers can be part of a collective claim for Dubsmash data breach compensation. Even if the breach has not led to any direct financial losses to you, you are still entitled to claim compensation for distress caused by the Dubsmash data breach.
