Life360 Breach: Hackers Accessed the Tile Customer Support Platform

Life360, a company known for its family safety services, recently fell victim to a criminal extortion attempt.

The company received emails from an unknown actor claiming to possess Tile customer information.

Upon receiving these emails, Life360 promptly investigated and detected unauthorized access to the Tile customer support platform.

The compromised data includes names, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, and Tile device identification numbers.

Fortunately, more sensitive information such as credit card numbers, passwords, log-in credentials, location data, and government-issued identification numbers were not affected, as the Tile customer support platform did not store this information.

Life360 believes that the incident was limited to the specific Tile customer support data described above and is not more widespread.
