The actress has revealed that a fan who worked at an Apple store accessed her personal details and began messaging her.
The 39-year-old star told Access Hollywood that Apple has another security issue on its hands: its employees.
Eva told hosts Billy Bush and Kit Hoover that her personal details were used by staff at the San Antonio Apple store in Texas.
"I've had a lot of problems of people breaking into my email," she revealed,
Eva said she was contacted by a sales assistant who told her,
“I made a dress I want to send it to you, I work at the Apple Store here in San Antonio...I saw your phone number from your profile, I just wanted to call and say hi I'm a fan.”
According to the former Desperate Housewives star, this was not an isolated incident.
Apple has not yet responded to the actress’s claims.
The tech giant is currently in the midst of a huge hacking scandal, after nude pictures of up to 100 female celebrities were leaked online.
The tech giant has released a statement which insisted, “We take user privacy very seriously and are actively investigating this report,” Apple spokeswoman Natalie Kerris told CNN after the pictures scandal surfaced.
A spokesperson for Jennifer Lawrence said at the weekend authorities had been contacted on the actress’s behalf and slammed the person or persons responsible for their “flagrant violation of privacy”.
Model Kate Upton’s lawyer has meanwhile branded the hack “outrageous”, telling MailOnline her representatives “intend to pursue anyone disseminating or duplicating these illegally obtained images to the fullest extent possible”.
Jennifer Lawrence’s spokesperson slammed the persons responsible in a statement issued, calling the offence a “flagrant violation of privacy”.
“The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence,” her representative stated.
