(KGTV) -- DoorDash announced Thursday that the information of 4.9 million users was affected by a data breach.

The company said in a blog post that 4.9 million consumers, Dashers and merchants who joined before April 5, 2018 were affected.

According to DoorDash, profile information including names, email addresses, delivery addresses, order history, phone numbers and hashed, salted passwords were accessed during the breach.

The company says the last four digits of payment cards and bank accounts were also compromised for some consumers, delivery workers and merchants, but full credit card and banking information was not accessed.

For 100,000 Dashers, driver’s license numbers were also accessed, the company said.

DoorDash says it’s in the process of notifying those affected.

The company says a third party accessed the data on May 4, 2019 and that it only became aware of the hack earlier in September.
