Samsung has revealed that the personal data of its customers had been compromised after the company suffered a data breach recently. In a blog post on Friday (2 September 2022), the South Korean tech giant elaborated that the data was compromised on 4 August 2022 following an apparent security incident in the preceding weeks. 

Samsung further added that an “unauthorised third party” had acquired information from some of Samsung’s US systems. These include names, contact information, product registration details and dates of birth. Thankfully, Samsung revealed that no credit card numbers or social security numbers were breached. 


The tech giant stressed that it had “taken actions” to secure the affected systems, including engaging with a “leading outside cybersecurity firm and coordinating with law enforcement,”. In the blog post, Samsung said that the information affected for each relevant customer may vary and that customers have been notified to make them aware of the matter. 

Nevertheless, Samsung assured that its consumer devices such as smartphones, tablets and more are not affected. Hence, customers can still use them as usual.
