Friend Finder Networks (formerly Various, Inc.) is an American internet company founded in 1996 by Andrew Conru.
Its corporate headquarters are located in Boca Raton, Florida, with additional offices in California, New York, and Taiwan.
Adult dating service company Friend Finder Network has reportedly been hacked, with over 412 million accounts, email addresses, and passwords from their websites made available on criminal marketplaces.

Last year's breach also included users' dates of birth, postal codes, sexual preferences, and whether they were seeking extramarital affairs.
