Clubhouse themselves have put out an official statement saying that there has been no data breach

Clubhouse have now officially confirmed via a statement that there has been "no breach of Clubhouse" and the supposed hacks are just "a series of bots generating billions of random phone numbers."

If, by coincidence, one of these numbers do correlate to an actual phone number of a clubhouse user, "The API returns no user identifiable information."

Other experts have also weighed in on the issue, rubbishing the hackers claims

News of @Clubhouse data breach on #darknet is getting viral.

First thing the seller claims FREE sample but it requires 8 credits to unlock.

Second it’s just random Japan phone numbers.

Threat actor is quite new on that forum, is least active & habitual to making such lame claims. pic.twitter.com/acEfcLQUCh

The people also pointed out that personal information was not available on the hacker's posts and that he had routinely published such claims that have been disproven before.

The hacker's forum itself has marked the data breach as a "bad sample" which means that the data does not contain anything of value and is useless.

After all of that camDown FREE is your security solution to protect you and your business from peeping toms and I am sure your father would say the same!
