Canva, the popular graphic design platform, faced a data breach in May 2019. The company revealed that hackers were able to access the personal details of its users, including their full names, email addresses, and city of residence.
The company quickly took steps to secure the compromised information and issued a statement reassuring customers that no financial or password information had been taken. The company also assured its clients that the breach had been contained and that there was no need for any further action from their end.
Canva also revealed that only a small number of accounts were affected. It is unclear how many accounts were breached but Canva stated that it was less than 150 million. This is a relatively small percentage of Canva’s total user base which is estimated to be over 20 million people.
Despite this relatively small number of accounts affected, the breach was still significant as it exposed personal information belonging to Canva’s users. The data breach also served as a reminder to other companies of how important it is to invest in cyber security measures to protect customer data from malicious actors or hackers.
Canva responded quickly to the data breach by launching an investigation into the incident and working with law enforcement authorities. The company has also stated that they have made changes to their security protocols in order to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future.
The data breach was undoubtedly an embarrassment for Canva as they pride themselves on being secure and reliable platform for their customers. However, they have taken steps in order to restore trust amongst its users and ensure that similar incidents do not occur again in the future.
