Careem, the ride-hailing company based in Dubai, revealed today it was the victim of a cyber breach.
Hackers accessed the names, email addresses, phone numbers and trip data of anyone who signed up for Careem prior to January 14. Careem said there’s no evidence the hackers accessed passwords or credit card information.
While the breach involved access to Careem’s data storage system for 14 million riders and 558,800 drivers (called captains), the company said it hasn’t seen any evidence of fraud or misuse.
