Specifically, DoorDash said in a blog post that customers who signed up for the delivery app before April 5, 2018, potentially had a slew of personal details compromised such as names, email addresses, phone numbers and order histories, as well as the last four digits of debit and credit cards.

DoorDash customers say their accounts have been hacked

Food delivery startup DoorDash has received dozens of complaints from customers who say their accounts have been hacked.

Dozens of people have tweeted at @DoorDash with complaints that their accounts had been improperly accessed and had fraudulent food deliveries charged to their account.
