"A user of OkCupid told TechCrunch that he was recently locked out of his account by a hacker who had changed his password and changed his email address on file.

The app reportedly didn't send an email to confirm the address change, but simply accepted it.

Several other users told TechCrunch they had similar experiences...........

A spokesperson from OkCupid gave Fox News the following statement on Monday:

'There has been no security breach at OkCupid. All websites constantly experience account takeover attempts and there hasn't been an increase in account takeovers on OkCupid. There's no story here.'" foxnews.com/tech/okcupid-denies-data-breach-as-users-complain-of-account-hacks [foxnews.com]
