"We've recently determined that some users were impacted by a software update introduced in November that contained a bug affecting a Google+ API", the company wrote. The personal information that was exposed was from people's Google+ profiles, including names, ages and occupations.

Google is expected to shut down Google+ APIs in the next 90 days, and it will now be shutting down the service itself much earlier than expected. At the time, it said profile data from up to 500,000 users might have been exposed to partner apps by a bug that was present for more than two years. This means that any apps or services that requested permission to view a user's profile information were granted access, even if the account was set to private.
