The Discord messaging app for Windows and Mac has been caught spying on users who are using it to advertise their health care services, according to the company.
The company released a statement Friday about the new issue, which affects people who have used the app since April 18 and who have not signed in to their accounts.
The new issue affects users who have a Discord account since April 17 and have not created a Discord profile, according the statement.
Discord, a free social network for people who want to connect with others on the Internet, was used by about 1.2 billion people globally at the time of the new problem.
It said the issue is a technical issue that will be resolved in the near future.
Discord has about 1 billion users worldwide, the company said.
Users can contact Discord support through the app or on the Discord website.
The Discord team will investigate the issue and will provide more information on the new situation when it is resolved, the statement said.
