2.7m riders and drivers affected in the UK

Uber announced last week that a year earlier hackers had stolen personal data for about 57 million customers and drivers worldwide.

"Uber users who notice anything suspicious can contact Uber's Help Centre by tapping "Help" in the app, then "Account and Payment Options" "I have an unknown charge" "I think my account has been hacked".

It's the first time an exact figure has been given for the United Kingdom specifically after the hack, in which information such as email addresses, names, and phone numbers were leaked. Now, after some further digging, it seems that 2.7 million of those affected were Uber customers from the UK. Almost 11,000 drivers in the state were affected.

"Washington law is clear: When a data breach puts people at risk, businesses must inform them", Ferguson said in the release. "Consumers expect and deserve protection from disclosure of their personal information".

Uber last week revealed a massive data breach that occurred over a year ago but never came to light because the company conspired to keep it hidden.

"While Uber has repeatedly asserted that there has been no evidence of fraud or misuse tied to the incident, the concealment of a data breach bears serious consequences under the Data Privacy Act of 2012", according to Privacy Commissioner Raymund Liboro. And in Italy, the only European Union country to have announced a full-blown investigation into the Uber incident before Wednesday, the fine may be more than $1 million, with the amount being related to the number of Italians who were affected.

The lawsuit names an Alberta woman affected by the breach as the plaintiff and seeks to have the class action certified to apply to a broader group of individuals.

It also notes that Uber has run into trouble before for failing to notify users.

Washington law requires both affected consumers and the attorney general's office to be notified within 45 days of the breach.

In a statement Tuesday, Uber said it takes the matter seriously and is cooperating with regulators.

That revelation prompted a delay in a high-profile trial over whether Uber stole self-driving vehicle technology from Waymo, a Google spinoff.
