The site, which boasts 64 million members, claims to have “helped millions of people find traditional partners, swinger groups, threesomes, and a variety of other alternative partners.” The information Adult Friend Finder collects is extremely personal in nature.
When signing up for an account, customers must enter their gender, which gender they’re interested in hooking up with and what kind of sexual situations they desire. It wasn’t until this week, when England’s Channel 4 News reported on the hack, that Adult Friend Finder was named as the victim.
Significantly less information about users has been leaked, however — while Ashley Madison included everything from photos and sexual preferences to addresses, the Friend Finder breach is limited to more basic information like email addresses, passwords, and registration dates.
Friend Finder Networks, the company behind adult dating site Adult Friend Finder has been hit with a massive hack — exposing more than 400 million user accounts.
The news comes via Leaked Source, a site that monitors data breaches, which has obtained a copy of the stolen user accounts.

Adult Friend Finder—which has about 63 million users worldwide—has launched an investigation into a "potential data security incident," the company said Friday.
