UPDATE (12:45 GMT): we’ve resolved the issues and MapVivo is back online. We’ll be watching the performance closely to make sure that it keeps running smoothly and no future malign attempts can slow down any of your journeys. Happy travels!
We’re really sorry, but today at 11:00 GMT we had to temporarily close MapVivo due to a possible attempt of an attack on our service.
You might have experienced MapVivo reacting reeeaaaaally slowly during last couple of hours, and we’d like to apologize for that. We’re doing our best to resolve those issues. All of your personal data and travel journals are absolutely safe.
A brief explanation of the problem: lately we’ve noticed an increasing number of automated search (and other) requests made to our service and apparently those are originating from China and Russia. Our engineers are working on blocking out all those automated queries that are seriously slowing down the whole service for all of MapVivo travelers.
You won’t be able to use your account while we take precautionary actions, but don’t worry, your account data and travel journals are safe. Please try accessing MapVivo again later today. Again – sorry for the inconvenience.
