AdultFriendFinder network hacked, 400 million accounts stolen (CNET Update report)
Read more about adultfriendfinder.com here. Adult Friend Finder offers a matching system for every fantasy, sexual want, and gender you can imagine, including groups, swingers, exhibitionism, cross-dressers, BDSM, and email or phone fantasies. My story is similar to yours. Adult FriendFinder is one of the most popular destinations on the Web for individuals, couples, and groups looking for casual encounters both online and in person. The site is a no-holds-barred, totally unfiltered adult haven packed with profiles, photos, videos, chat rooms, blogs, live member webcams, and so much more. Just like its sister companies from the FriendFinder Network, it requires an email verification process once finished. Upon signing up, you will be asked to answer a few questions that ask about some of your relevant, basic information. However, the adult site fell in disgrace over the years for having lots of fake members and data hacking. This split isn’t officially confirmed, though, and there are clearly enough women to keep the site up and running. Locate the profile you wish to contact on AdultFriendFinder. Once on the member’s profile page, scroll down to the middle of the page to find the email form “Send user an email” or click the “Send an email” link located in the “Interact” section.
- But all of that stuff takes a really long time, and is honestly just a hassle.
- I have tried others and found only Adult Friend Finder is the only one that I meet chicks on.
- We take member fraud very seriously and we have a entire team dedicated to scrubbing fake profiles and messages.
- (Even AskMen couldn’t find those stats).
- The free chat rooms are usually teeming with people looking to meet up for adult dating, as opposed to many pay-per-use sites where the chat rooms are normally empty.
- This obviously calls into question the safety and privacy of the site, particularly when videos and pictures are regularly shared.
I’ve been a Gold member for 1 month. AFF has definitely NOT lived up to the positive reviews I read. NOTE – those were not from actual users. All in all, a complete waste of time and effort, and customer service that would make Auschwitz blush. There’s speculation that this is because there are significantly more men than women on the site, and AdultFriendFinder would likely be worried about scaring off newcomers with the whole “sausage party” vibe. It’s heaven for straight men, hit-or-miss for straight women and queer men, and likely an actual hellscape for queer women. His account on Twitter has since been suspended, but at the time he made those comments, Diana Lynn Ballou, FriendFinder Networks’ VP and Senior Counsel of Corporate Compliance Litigation, directed Salted Hash to them in response to follow-up questions about the incident. Six databases from FriendFinder Networks Inc., the company behind some of the world’s largest adult-oriented social websites, have been circulating online since they were compromised in October. California-based AdultFriendFinder was also targeted by hackers in May last year. In that incident, more than four million users had their details stolen, which included not only names, addresses, and passwords, but also information on sexual preferences, data that has not been exposed in this latest hack, according to ZDNet, which has viewed a portion of the leaked data. Recently I thought I would give it another try. I signed up, I thought, for 1 month for $20. At the end of the transaction I was charged $101 for three months of gold service plus an extra month of standard service. There are many of these horrible sites out here who don’t have real customer service people and who wouldn’t give you back one penny of your money. The fact that I was refunded a portion of my money definitely makes me feel less violated. In 1996, after selling Web Personals, he created a site called Friend Finder, one of the first social networking sites in existence. However, only days after Friend Finder went live, Conru and his crew noticed that the majority of what people were posting were naked photos of themselves and desperate pleas from people looking to get fucked. Naturally. That is, of course, what the internet is for, after all. Adult Friend Finder is one of the commonly known sites where you can get fast sexual encounters and frequent hookups. AdultFriendFinder has been hacked, revealing the account particulars of greater than 400 million people who would undoubtedly favor to keep their identities personal on the “world’s largest intercourse and swinger neighborhood” web site. ~4M users of AdultFriendFinder had highly delicate info, together with birthdays, ZIP codes, sexual orientations and e mail and IP addresses, uncovered during the hack. You must have heard about hookup site Adult Friend Finder before aka aff.com? In 1994, a man named Andrew Conru created Web Personals, the first online dating site ever.
