Parking app developer EasyPark has published a notice on its website warning of a data breach it discovered on December 10, 2023, which impacts an unknown number of its millions of users.

EasyPark is a Swedish company that creates mobile and web apps that serve as parking space locators, booking managers, and EV charging point finders.

The company operates digital parking services in 20 countries and over 4,000 cities, covering most of Europe, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, and the UK.

The EasyPark app (Europe-focused) has over 10 million downloads on Google Play, while its other apps, RingGo (UK-focused) and ParkMobile (US-focused), have 5 million installs each.
The company's announcement mentions that some customers have had the following information compromised, depending on what they have provided to the platform:
  • Name
  • Phone number
  • Physical address
  • Email address
  • Some digits of their credit card/debit card or IBAN
The above could help cybercriminals launch effective phishing attacks against the exposed EasyPark users, which the company warns explicitly about in the data breach notice.
