WestJet app data breach reveals other people's personal information


WestJet says it's investigating a technical glitch on its app that allowed users to see other people's profiles.

CTV News first learned of the issue Wednesday afternoon from a viewer and a Twitter post that indicated that once you logged on to the airline's app, you could see the personal information of other WestJet app users.

The airline said it became aware of the issue just before 4 p.m. Wednesday and that the issue was resolved about 35 minutes later.

WestJet has not provided any more details about the data breach.

The Calgary-based airline apologized to its customers.
