Private Data of 49 Million Instagram Users Has Leaked

The Infinite Brief
An unprotected Amazon Web Services server containing personal information of millions of Instagram influencers, celebrities, and brand accounts have been found online.

The exposed data includes users’ biodata, profile picture, the number of followers they have, their location by city and country, and contact information like the Instagram account owner’s email address and phone number.

Commenting on the security breach Facebook said, “We’re looking into the issue to understand if the data described – including email and phone numbers – was from Instagram or from other sources.”
