A lot of consumers think that game apps are harmless. However, allegations of potential exposure of personal information have surfaced that put consumers on a frenzy for data privacy. Here’s what we know about the potential Zynga Class Action Lawsuit investigation:
About 173 million Zynga players on Android and iOS devices were subjected to a data breach heist that was claimed by a hacker identified only as Gnosticplayers.

What Draw Something Players Need to Know
Zynga is the company behind fan-favorite online and mobile games such as FarmVille, Words with Friends, Zynga Poker, and Mafia Wars, and boasts more than a billion players who, according to Forbes, drove Zynga’s revenues to $1.3 billion in 2019.
Zynga bought the Draw Something app in 2012 together with the app’s developer. The game allows players to draw clues on their phones and send them to other players to guess.
The alleged data breach affected players of Draw Something and Words with Friends and was first reported in September of last year. The cyberattack included information on email addresses, usernames, login IDs, Facebook IDs, phone numbers, and hashed and salted passwords.
Zynga claimed that the hacker was not able to access the players’ financial information and asserted that the company has “taken steps to protect certain players’ accounts from invalid logins, including but not limited to where we believe that passwords may have been accessed.”
A class action lawsuit was filed in March against the company for “negligence and a failure to safeguard” it’s users’ personal information. The class action looks at claiming damages worth more than $5 million.
If you have created your account with Zynga and used Words with Friends and Draw Something before September 2019, contact us for possible eligibility for the class action lawsuit investigation.
