Uber on Friday apologised to its 156,000 users in Brazil, whose personal information was leaked in a major data breach in 2016.
However, it added that the specialists hired to investigate the data breach had found no evidence that records of journeys, credit card numbers, bank accounts or birth dates had been seized. It also said it had not found any fraud or illicit use of the data.
The Brazilian users were notified only after an agreement was signed between Uber and the Brazilian Attorney-General's personal data protection office.
