Sugar Daddy App Leaking Sensitive Information
Sugar daddy app takes many forms and involves millions of people, all of whom share sensitive data including addresses, phone numbers, financial information, and photos. When using a sugar daddy app you need to make sure that your private data stays private. That's why it's very important for the team behind sugar daddy apps to make sure that their app is secure. Public trust is at stake, as well as the extremely personal exposure of data.
When millions users of SugarD, a leading sugar daddy app, hear about the data breach or security lapse, they get very bent out of shape. Due to a recent misconfiguration of AWS S3 'buckets', over 845GB of data was leaked, which contains 20 million files with highly sensitive data including:
- Images and photos
- Personal details
- Financial data
- Audio recordings
- Private chats
This leak happened to SugarD as well as several other dating apps, and the fallout is just starting. It's a breach of trust, no doubt, that has many in the sugaring community very concerned.
For that reason, we put together a list of privacy and safety tips when using a sugar daddy app. Use them to stay safe and keep your private data private.
Tip 1 - Only Use a Prepaid Card or Gift Card on any Sugar Baby Apps
When you do, if the card is hacked or the data is stolen the hackers don't get access to your main credit cards. Plus, prepaid and gift cards only have a finite amount of money and aren't tied into your banking. You might lose a small amount of money but it won't up-end your life completely.
Tip 2 - Better Not Show Your Face
This is difficult for sugar babies, of course, because you want possible sugar daddies to be able to see your pretty face. That being said, if there's a data leak your photo and face will be out there, which isn't good. That's why many sugar babies are using influencers' Instagram photos.
Tip 3 - Don't Use Your Phone Number or Email Address.
There are plenty of things you can do to set up accounts just for using on a sugar daddy app. That way, if it gets hacked, hackers will not be able to find you, track you or hassle you. They include:
- Creating a separate email just for sugar daddy apps.
- Using a 'burner' phone for communication, not your regular phone.
- Not telling other sugar babies your personal data.
Tip 4 - Don't Talk Aout Finacial Transactions on Sugar Daddy Apps
This is vitally important. If you don't want anyone to know your arrangements, don't talk about allowance on a sugar daddy app. Instead, take your conversation to WhatsApp or Kik where it's more secure. Better still, only talk finances in private and in person. (Yes, it's more difficult but, these days, you can't be too secure.)
Ladies (and gentlemen) with data breaches becoming far too frequent, it behooves you to take the precautions above and keep your private and personal data safe. If you don't, the next thing you know the whole world might know your private info, and have access to your funds. Don't let that happen. Keep sugaring sweet and use the precautions we've given you today.
