(NEWSER) – Those looking for love on the dating app Coffee Meets Bagel received an email from the company on Thursday. Given that it just happened to be Valentine’s Day, users might have expected to open it up and read a word encouragement. Not so much. The email revealed a data breach, reports NBC News. Specifically, those using the app before May 2018—an estimated 6 million people—might have been compromised; the good news is that only names and email addresses seem to have been affected.
