    Social media aggregation site Timehop has revealed a major breach of customers’ personal information affecting 21 million users. The firm claimed in a post over the weekend that it discovered a network intrusion on July 4, leading to the compromise of names, email addresses and phone numbers. The firm offers an unusual service in resurfacing old social media posts from years gone by. However, although the hackers stole the “access tokens” provided to Timehop by its social media partners, it claimed these were quickly deauthorized and that there’s no evidence of unauthorized access of user data through these tokens.
