PSA: The company behind the iOS Reddit beta survey that the mods posted on this subreddit had its data breached (Phone #, Email, Username). Consider deleting anything on your account you do not want publicly associated.
I know some people use multiple accounts and for some reason, this warning wasn’t posted in the announcements section on Reddit. It’s pretty serious and with people getting fired over 10 year old tweets, you may want to consider deleting portions of your account. Here is a copy paste of the message Reddit sent me.
We’re messaging you because your Reddit username was included in the responses that were downloaded. The surveys affected were all voluntary and included:
A sign-up for the Reddit iOS app beta (Feb. 2016; ~6,600 responses)
A survey about using Reddit via mobile apps (Sept. 2017; ~470 responses)
A survey about the alpha version of the Reddit redesign (Sept. – Nov. 2017; ~510 responses)
A survey about potential new posting features (Mar. – Apr. 2018; ~230 responses)
A survey about Reddit Gold (May 2018; ~140 responses)
If you responded to any of those surveys, the information you submitted in the form may have been compromised — including your email address if you provided one. If you did provide an email address as part of your survey response, consider whether there’s anything on this Reddit account that you wouldn’t want associated publicly with that address. You can find instructions on how to remove information from your account on this help page. And, as always, watch out for potential phishing scams or spam emails that might try to take advantage of any information you provided in response to the surveys.
Edit: An admin has clarified, phone =/= phone #. Phone represents what kind of phone you’re using.
