ParkMobile (Website), a contactless parking app used by the City of Orlando, was recently involved in an incident that exposed millions of people’s private information to a hacker.

The data breach included access to email addresses, license plate numbers, passwords, phone numbers, and more – though credit card information was not accessed.

ParkMobile currently has over 20 million registered users and has worked with the City of Orlando for years since they launched smart meters in the Central Business District. The Community Redevelopment Agency (Website) recently used the app to waive parking fees during the pandemic to encourage people to visit downtown and support local businesses there, under the “ParkDTO” campaign.
