During a security audit, Google discovered the following:
A bug in one of the Google+ People APIs meant that app also had access to Profile fields that were shared with the user, but not marked as public.
Data is limited to static, optional Google+ Profile fields including name, email address, occupation, gender, and age.
The data breach does not include any other data a user may have posted or connected to Google+ or any other service.
The bug was discovered and immediately patched in March 2018.
The profiles of up to 500,000 Google+ accounts were potentially affected.
Google cannot confirm which users were specifically impacted by this bug.
There’s no evidence that any developer was aware of this bug or abusing the API.
There’s no evidence that any profile data was misused.
Google+ will shut down over a 10-month period, which is slated for completion by the end of next August.
More information will be available over the coming months, including ways that users can download and migrate their data.
