A technical problem on Delta Air Lines’ Fly Delta app caused concerns of a possible data breach earlier today. The airline reassured us no breaches occurred.

Some users logged on to their accounts — and saw other passengers’ itineraries.


My social media searches found that the issue wasn’t widespread. It’s still slightly concerning, though.

Delta twitter reps suggested affected users delete and reinstall the Fly Delta app. I didn’t see any abnormalities on my end — but reinstalled the app just for safety. (The whole process of deleting, reinstalling, and logging back in took all of about a minute.)

A Delta spokesperson told Rene’s Points, “There has been no breach of any Delta system or our app. Delta teams this morning noticed a technical issue with a Fly Delta app notification, and quickly addressed it. We apologize to customers for any inconvenience. Customer safety, privacy and security remain our top priorities.”
