Some users in the UK of telehealth app Babylon Health were able to view the videos of other patients’ online doctor visits.

A recent CBC article reported that a user on social media claimed to have had access to the private consultations of at least 50 other patients.

In response, the company acknowledged the breach, attributing it to a software bug and stated that international users were not affected.

A Canadian version of the app is currently being used in BC and Alberta – where it is already currently under investigation by the Alberta privacy commissioner to assess its’ compliance with the province’s Personal Information Protection Act.
