Google shuts down Google+ following massive security flaw - GSMArena.com news
And an internal memo noted that while there wasn't any evidence of misuse on behalf of developers, there wasn't a way to know for sure whether any misuse took place.
Google+ minus people: In a blog postpublished after the article ran, Google said it had found no evidence data had been abused, and that it would shut off consumer access to Google+ (a corporate version will presumably continue to run).

Google shuttered its consumer Google+ site, after the company discovered a software glitch that gave outsiders potential access to private profile data. Google claims that they didn't tell its users because they believed that without sufficient information on who was hacked, they found it wouldn't be useful to identify the public on the matter. Despite integration with the company's other, hugely successful products such as Gmail, Blogger and YouTube, Google admits usage is negligible.
Google goes "beyond legal requirements" and applies "several criteria focused on our users" when deciding whether to provide notice, a spokesperson said in a statement. "Given these challenges and the very low usage of the consumer version of Google+, we made a decision to sunset the consumer version of Google+", Google said in the blog announcement.
The incident also marks the beginning of the end for Google+, which the company plans to shut down over the next year.
Google says it began reviewing developer access at the start of this year, so these new policies might have arrived even without the WSJ's reporting.
"Smith said that despite Google's engineering teams putting in a lot of effort, "[Google+] has not achieved broad consumer or developer adoption, and has seen limited user interaction with apps. "Ultimately it will be up to users to proactively monitor how their data is used and what applications have access to that data by using strong passwords and carefully reviewing access requests prior to using an app like Google+", she added.
