Micromax, who had announced the launch of its flagship product – the Micromax Canvas 4 – a few days back, has been accused of leaking the private information of buyers of its smartphone.
Reportedly, Micromax sent emails to those who pre-booked the Canvas 4 regarding the deduction of the full amount, but that email had sensitive information related to 130 users who had pre-booked the Canvas 4 through Micromax’s web store. According to the report, users who received emails also got information regarding details of other users that included phone numbers, login details, email addresses, and even shipping addresses of buyers.
Such a level of information leak is a serious issue as anyone with access to such information can easily change the shipping details and get the devices delivered at their own or some other address without raising an alarm.
However, Micromax has other problems to deal with too. According to retailers, the device is already available for sale, but those who have pre-booked it are yet to get their hands on it.
