In aftermath of ransomware attack, Garmin services begin to return

July 27, 2020  - By

Following a ransomware attack last week that left Garmin Connect and other services offline, the company is gradually restoring its internet capabilities.

For those who make use of fitness tracking, however, Garmin Connect workouts are still not able to sync to devices and the app is under maintenance, reports CNN.

“We are happy to report that Garmin Connect recovery is underway,” the company announced on the Garmin Connect website. Some platforms have been given the green light, while others are offering limited services.

The company also said in a statement that there is “no indication” that customer data was accessed, stolen or lost.
