Affected customers were informed by email prior to OnePlus posting on its website. The company claims that because the information taken is not to do with payments, the extent of the consequences will be phishing and scam emails.
We’d imagine if you’ve bought a recent OnePlus 7T or 7T Pro you’ll have been affected – check your inbox.
It’s not a great look for OnePlus, with this its third data breach in two years following credit card information gathered by hackers around the time of the OnePlus 5T launch and the harvesting of emails possible in its Shot On OnePlus feature.
OnePlus claims it is “partnering with a world-renowned security platform next month”, which seems like a year too late to us. Its post also doesn’t suggest anything users can do to their accounts as passwords do not appear to have been stolen. We’d advise changing them anyway.
