Peloton Leak Points to Another Perfect Use for MySudo: At-Home Fitness Apps

Jun 28, 2021 | Privacy Tips

MySudo use cases are limited only by your imagination.

Some of them are obvious, like shoppingtravel, and online dating.

Others are less obvious, like house huntingteaching and even foster parenting (how cool is that?). 

Peloton’s recent API bug pointed us to another perfect use for MySudo: at-home fitness apps.

The Peloton API vulnerability meant the age, gender, city, weight, workout statistics and date of birth of each of its 3 million subscribers were exposed, even when their account was set to private

The Peloton bug is now fixed and so far Peloton hasn’t reported any malicious activity from the breach, such as scraping attacks like those we’ve seen at FacebookLinkedIn and Clubhouse, but it got us thinking about how MySudo can protect your data when you work out at home. 

MySudo is the world’s only all-in-one privacy app. It’s the only app on the market that offers private and secure phoneemailbrowsing and payments all in one place, accessed via Sudos—secure digital profiles that work as real alternatives to your personal identity. 

Learn how to use MySudo in 90 seconds.

To subscribe to and use at-home fitness apps privately and securely, you could create a separate and dedicated ‘At-Home Fitness Sudo’.

Working out with your At-Home Fitness Sudo means you can sign up for and download workouts privately and securely, and get great content without cyber risks. 

You could use your At-Home Fitness Sudo to privately and securely:

  • Create accounts
  • Stream content
  • Pay online
  • Cancel on your own terms.

Here’s the set-up in 7 simple steps:

  1. Download the app in iOS or Android.
  2. Create an At-Home Fitness Sudo
  3. Add a name. Choose a name to use when subscribing to fitness workouts. It can be your own or an alias. Use this name for your accounts and communications.
  4. Add an email addressYou’ll use this email to create and manage your accounts.
  5. Add a phone numberThis is a real phone number you’ll use to make and receive calls and messages. It’s good for services that want a phone number for login too. 
  6. Use the private browser assigned to your At-Home Fitness Sudo to privately browse programs and apps. Search for what you want without ads and pop-ups.
  7. When you’ve found the perfect program or app, privately and securely check out using a MySudo virtual cardA MySudo virtual card is like a financial avatar. It goes online in place of you and your personal credit or debit card and completes transactions without leaving your personal information. It protects your privacy and limits your financial risk. Find out why your MySudo virtual card is more private than your bank’s virtual card.

All done. Grab your gym shorts!

And we haven’t even told you the best bit: MySudo is built on the concept of compartmentalization, the most powerful data protection strategy in the world. In our digital lives, compartmentalization really means ‘Don’t put all your eggs in one basket’. Instead, categorize and separate your personal data into many different compartments to reduce the impact when it is compromised. Compartmentalization recognizes no system is perfect, breaches are always possible, so it’s wise to manage the risk. You might lose an egg or two, but you won’t lose them all. By creating and managing an At-Home Fitness Sudo as one of your nine separate Sudo profiles in the app, MySudo makes compartmentalizing your personal data simple.
