Companies just can’t seem to keep our data safe.
As long as the penalties are nothing more than a slap on the wrist, that won’t change either.
Doordash announced that users who joined on or before 4/5/18 have had their information stolen.
The stolen information includes names, email addresses, delivery addresses, order history, phone numbers, as well as hashed passwords. Full credit card numbers were not part of the breach. The driver’s licenses of 100,000 delivery workers were also breached.
Doordash doesn’t believe that the hackers can access the passwords, but they’re encouraging people to change their passwords.
I first wrote about DoorDash before 4/5/18, so check when you signed up, change your password, and as always, stay vigilant about checking your credit cards and credit report for fraud.
