Timehop, which resurfaces photos and posts from social media accounts, suffered a data breach July 4 that affected 21 million accounts.
It was closed down just two hours and 19 minutes later.
They did not carry out the attack until July 4, when the attacker transferred the compromised data and attacked Timehop's production database.
Timehop noted that none of its "memories" (the social media posts and photos the app stores) were accessed. We have deactivated these keys so they can no longer be used by anyone - so you'll have to re-authenticate to our App.

Barry served alongside Hardiman as a federal appeals judge on the 3rd Circuit before stepping down previous year . But Senate Democrats held up his confirmation for three years, accusing him of being a Bush political operative.
As a result, Timehop says users may have been logged out of the app to reset all of the keys. All of them had their names, email addresses and part of the access tokens used to collect information from their social media profiles compromised.

Timehop disclosed a data breach that affected 21 million accounts.
"It is recommended that you take additional security precautions with your cellular provider to ensure that your number can not be ported", the company adds. The company said a hacker gained access to its infrastructure and stole details on its users that included usernames, emails, telephone numbers, and access keys.
In terms of how its network was accessed, it appears that the attacker was able to compromise Timehop's cloud computing environment by targeting an account that had not been protected by multifactor authentication. At 2:43 pm US Eastern Time the attacker conducted a specific action that triggered an alarm, and Timehop engineers began to investigate.
