The digital music streaming service Spotify posted on its company blog Tuesday that it had been hacked.

But there’s no need to panic just yet. After an investigation, Spotify has concluded that only one user’s data has been breached, “and this did not include any password, financial or payment information.”

To be safe, the music app will provide all Android users with a new upgrade in the coming days. iOS devices and Windows Phones were not impacted. This transparency stands out in light of how Target and eBay recently handled major security breaches, to some criticism.
