SINGAPORE: Personal data from potentially 2.8 million eatigo accounts were illegally assessed in a data breach.

In an email to customers on Saturday (Oct 31), the restaurant reservation platform said that along with other e-commerce sites, it was the subject of "a data security incident involving unauthorised access to our customer database".

"Our investigations indicate that the information that was illegally accessed was from more than 18 months ago and included customer names, email addresses and phone numbers," said eatigo. 

"Your existing eatigo account password is protected by encryption and hence safe. We do not store credit card information on our system."
