McDonald's India urges users to update app

McDonald's India App Leaked Customer Data Millions Said to Be Impacted

McDonald's India urged users to update online ordering app McDelivery on their devices as a precaution, amid reports that the existing app may have exposed users' personal data.

It added that no financial or private information, such as passwords, bank account details or credit card numbers was ever at risk.

The fast food chain in India works as two separate wings - McDonald's India (West and South) and McDonald's India (North and East).

For now, the fault appears localised to users in India, where McDonalds has millions of regular customers.

Hardcastle Restaurants, the franchisee of McDonald's for West and South India operations rejected the claims and said that its website and app has always been safe to use.

The leak is not said to have impacted data of customers in North and East of India as they use another app and website.

In an update to the report on hackernoon, Fallible has reported that McDonalds replied to them that the issue had been fixed; but they said, "he McDonald's fix is incomplete and the endpoint is still leaking data". "We have communicated this again to them and are waiting for their response".
