On Sunday evening, a website called “” surfaced that reportedly contained the personal data of millions of Reliance Jio users.

Multiple users in India have reported that a website called Magicapk has access to data of existing Reliance Jio users.

Jio was one of the first telecom operators in India to use Aadhaar ID for SIM activation. As you can see below, even though the Aadhaar number isn’t revealed here, one cannot be sure that whoever has registered the website, doesn’t already have the details with them.

Reliance Jio has over 100 million users on its network right now, and if the data breach reported affects all its users, then we’re looking at a serious situation, especially for those who have multiple Jio connections.

We’ve checked with multiple Jio users, and it seems the data leak is only confined to early adopters of Jio last year.
Doing further investigation on the whereabouts of the website, we can confirm that the website has been registered in India, but there are no details as to who owns this portal.

The company has informed that strict measures have been put in place to ensure no major data mishaps take place.
We have come across the unverified and unsubstantiated claims of the website and are investigating it. Prima facie, the data appears to be inauthentic. We want to assure our subscribers that their data is safe and maintained with highest security. The sata is only shared with authorities as per their requirement. We have informed law enforcement agencies about the claims of the website and will follow through to ensure strict action is taken.
