The Kardashian-Jenner Apps Should Come With Warning Labels...

Watching the Kardashian-Jenner debauchery comes with a price!
Since launching their new apps and websites, reality TV personalities Kylie, Kendall, Khloé, and Kim have expanded their empire. Though watching a simple contouring video seems pretty harmless, MotherBoard reported that using the sites failed to protect their users' personal info!
Software engineer Alaxic Smith penetrated the sites and found that he was able to view the full names and email addresses for the 663,270 people who signed up for Kylie's site.

He published his findings on Medium, but his post has since been taken down.
Part of Alaxic’s post read, per Gawker, “I then noticed that I could do the same API call across each of the websites and return the same exact data for each site. I also had the ability to create/destroy users, photos, videos and more. It’s clear why this is a major issue, and raises the question: Should users trust not only their personal information but also payment information with these apps?”
So — fans be warned! Watching the Kardashians puts you at risk — for a lot more than a $2.99 loss or a potential makeup fail!
