(PIX11)– The popular social media photo-sharing app Snapchat was hacked on Tuesday.

A website called SnapchatDB.info went live on December 31st sharing usernames and phone numbers of 4.6 million users.

Anyone who accessed the site was able to download and save the published information.

The information was gathered through a different Snapchat hack and was made public in an effort to convince the app to beef up its security.

The founder of Snapchat Evan Spiegel had his personal information published among the millions of others.

The website, which has since been suspended, said it “censored the last two digits of the phone numbers” in order to “minimize spam and abuse.”
