Keeps showing failed to connect to backend to me.

FFS, if they were in the US or EU, the fine alone would bankrupt them.

my gps coordinates.
one of my bank accounts.
one of my credit cards
my current mobile number.
are there.

and apparently they also have kyc data which means my pan card or voter id card photos because i didn't have aadhaar when i did my mobikwik kyc.

so everything is great.

What does this mean? Do they have my CVV etc or not? Card number is valid. I replaced with XXX

"card_number": "XXXXX******XXXX",
"holder_name": "manu1991",
"other_card_details": [
"expirymonth",
"expiryyear",
"cvv2"

So they were storing CVV numbers as well? I thought no one stores CVV details. FFS. Will need to get all of them reissued

What security audits? It's a lot easy to deny and move on. They know, the government won't take any action. And given the attitude, forget anything will happen. lol

The attitude of the co-founder.

The company has of course denied any breach.

This is an old tweet because this breach was first reported in late February.

Can someone verify if CVV is also stored ?
Donno when Paytm will get jacked ....
Also being connected with bank accounts and knowing how much money each has , They will write a script which filters out with Balance Rs>X rupees . Shortlisted and scams will start.

All lessons to learn . Separate Saving/Salary/Main account from expenditure account is the least we can do
