Chick-Fil-A Data Breach 2023: What Happened, Who Was Affected, and Steps to Protect Yourself


In March, Chick-Fil-A served up a not-so-delicious announcement, revealing a “fowl” play data breach on their mobile app, which "fried" the personal details of approximately 2% of their app-loving patrons. The company discovered the breach when they noticed unusual login activity occurring within an internal account, and immediately took steps to isolate the incident and fortify against further attacks.

It is good that the company pecked away at the problem when they spotted unusual login activity, swiftly isolating the breach and fortifying their digital coop. However, customers have filed a class action lawsuit stating that the company took two months to notify them of the breach, potentially violating their rights.

Cloaked Sharing is Live!

Check out this week's changelog with new features, performance improvements, and bug fixes.

Mobile App:

  • Your mobile app is getting upgraded to version 1.7.0
  • Support for Identity Sharing ▶ You can now share identity information via encrypted links with trusted family and friends.
  • Security Upgrade UX Improvements ▶ This won't apply to MOST of you but we definitely have some users who are still hanging around on an earlier version of encryption. You’re still safe, but definitely upgrade! You'll get access to new features! And, you will be on the highest Cloaked level of security.
  • iOS: Fixed a weird bug where an email or phone number was not copying consistently from the identity view.
  • Android: Fixed a (different) weird bug where the app sometimes logged you out when you use our identity autofill in your mobile device.
  • Android: Turns out you could save ANY text string as your "birthday" on the Cloaked website. The Android app really didn't like that so we fixed the crash and kindly asked our website team to stop letting people save "The Great Gatsby" in the birthday field.

The Cloaked Ecosystem just added some major interface updates and product features

Over the last few weeks we’ve updated all four of our products. We’re so excited to see what the community thinks of these updates.

All three Cloaked products have received a major overhaul over the past several weeks. Here’s the rundown of what’s been changed:

📱 Mobile launched a massive overhaul bringing users a brand new user interface, where identities with phone numbers and email addresses can be generated with a single tap!

  • Each phone number and email address can now forward to any personal number or inbox with customizable settings and notification controls
  • One unified place listing all your virtual identities
  • The ability to sync your contacts with your personal device to enable caller ID
  • A more intuitive search experience
  • The ability to autofill encrypted data without sacrificing security

🌐 Extension released a swath of performance updates that make the extension lighter and quicker, while increasing compatibility with other password managers.

  • Performance improvements have made the extension incredibly lightweight meaning that even with hundreds of tabs open the extension doesn’t noticeably affect performance.
  • The extension doesn’t overlap with chrome or another password manager’s autofill when you’re on a website trying to log in.
  • Filling addresses is as easy as clicking in an address field and clicking fill, making filling in forms even quicker.

💻 Dashboard rolled out a complete overhaul of the activity portion of the product as well as a litany of other improvements!

  • Completely redesigned activity focused on making emails and texts quicker and easier to find, read, and compose.
  • Identity creation and details were overhauled, now with predictive website matching and a persistent right hand column UI.
  • Improved password manager importer making it simpler and easier to switch to Cloaked.
  • Cloaked offboarding is simpler now with an easy data export process.
  • Support is a chat message a way with on site support chat.
