What should you do to protect yourself?

You may want to take the following steps to protect your information and help guard against fraud:

(i) Ignore any suspicious emails, texts, or phone calls – particularly if they appear to be from DoorDash – as they may be bad actors attempting to defraud you.

(ii) Though no passwords were exposed, you may want to update the passwords on your email account and any other accounts where you use your email address to log in.

(iii) Validate with your financial institution to make sure your information is up to date. Add any new information you want to monitor – especially information you think may be vulnerable after this breach to credit monitoring services to scan. 

(iv) Place a fraud alert on your credit file and change your credit card number if you want to remain in the clear relating to the exposed last four digits found in your digital wallet that was ever linked to DoorDash.

(v) If you have reasonable evidence as an employee that DoorDash failed to take extra precautions, please report this to relevant authorities and news agencies so that the company can be taken to court!
