Robinhood says some customer accounts may have become target of hackers

·1 min read

Oct 9 (Reuters) - Fintech startup Robinhood Markets Inc said on Friday some customers might have become a target of hackers because of their personal email accounts being compromised outside of its platform.

The issue did not occur from a breach in the firm's systems, a spokesperson for the company said in a statement.

"We're actively working with those impacted to secure their accounts", Robinhood added.

Robinhood, which is credited with helping popularize trading among millennials, has seen multiple outages since March due to higher-than-usual traffic to its app from a recent upsurge in day trade by retail investors.

Last month, Reuters reported that the firm had increased its latest funding round from investors to $660 million, giving it a valuation of $11.7 billion. (Reporting by Abhishek Manikandan in Bengaluru; Editing by Anil D'Silva)
