We've covered Trapster a few times here in the past but they seem to of have had a run in with some hackers as of late. Recently Trapster has been sending e-mails out to users letting them know hackers may have comprised the Trapster database:

"The Trapster team has recently learned that our website has been the target
of a hacking attempt, and it is possible that your email address and password were compromised.  We have taken, and continue to take, preventative measures to avoid future incidents but we are recommending that you change your Trapster password.  As always, Trapster recommends that you use distinctive passwords for each site you visit, but if you use the same password on Trapster that you use on other services, we recommend that you change your password on those services as well."

If you have any questions, you'll want to reach out to Trapster, and if you are a Trapster user please, be sure to change up your password as soon as possible. Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

Trapster user e-mails and passwords might have been compromised

Why are they even storing passwords as plain text anyway? The security of some websites is really disturbing, especially popular ones that should be developed by professionals. Take AndroidCentral.com: emailing passwords?.. If someone broke into my email account they would have access to every website that stupidly emails all my login details.

this app has problems too i tried it on 2 my touches 4G and its still forcing to close but i uninstalled it but then again u got a point too
