Wag Labs, the company behind the popular app that connects dog owners to dog walkers exposed over 100 peoples' addresses and home lock codes in what the company is calling a technical glitch.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the exposed information was located on obscure pages on Wag’s website that weren't’t password-protected. It wasn't clear how long the information was visible.

Wag said it was notified last week of a “technical glitch” in its software and that it fixed the problem hours later. So far, there's no indication if anyone's house has been broken into as a result or if any hackers had access to the information.
