Trust Wallet, a leading cryptocurrency service, experienced a security breach within its third-party customer support system, which exposed the names/nicknames and email addresses of its users.

Trust Wallet is a secure, self-custody crypto wallet supporting 10M+ assets across 70+ blockchains including crypto.

The company announced on X (formerly Twitter) that its third-party customer support service, which they use, experienced a security breach on January 17, 2024.

Firstly, no user funds were at risk from the breach. We swiftly contained and mitigated the issue, found during a routine security check. The unauthorized access was limited to the names/nicknames and email addresses used to file a support ticket with us via the third-party system. The inner contents of tickets were not accessed.
