ParkMobile the online APP that is used to pay for parking in Bar Harbor has announced that there has been a data breach.

From the ParkMobile website

"In keeping with our commitment to transparency, we want to share an update on the cybersecurity incident we announced last month.

Our investigation concluded that encrypted passwords, but not the encryption keys needed to read them, were accessed. While we protect user passwords by encrypting them with advanced hashing and salting technologies, as an added precaution, users may consider changing their passwords in the "Settings" section of the ParkMobile app or by clicking this link.

Our investigation has confirmed that basic account information – license plate numbers and, if provided by the user, email addresses and/or phone numbers, and vehicle nicknames – was accessed. In a small percentage of cases, mailing addresses were affected. No credit cards or parking transaction history were accessed, and we do not collect Social Security numbers, driver’s license numbers, or dates of birth.

Please rest assured we take seriously our responsibility to safeguard the security of our users’ information and appreciate your continued trust."
