According to Uber, the 2.7 million figure is "approximate rather than an accurate and definitive account" - this is because the information gathered by the firm's app does not always specify where users live. It involved names, mobile-phone numbers and email addresses, the ride-hailing firm told the UK's Information Commissioner's Office (ICO).
The breach was a further setback to the Silicon Valley company after London's transport regulator stripped it of its operating licence in September, citing Uber's approach to reporting serious criminal offences and background checks on drivers.
In the hack, 57 million Uber customers and drivers' details were compromised.
In a statement, deputy commisioner of the ICO, James Dipple-Johnstone, said: On its own [the stolen] information is unlikely to pose a direct threat to citizens.
The data regulator, the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO), has said it was yet to receive technical reports on the incident and called on the company to alert affected customers as soon as possible.
"We'll be working with the NCSC plus other relevant authorities in the United Kingdom and overseas to determine the scale of the breach, how it has affected people in the United Kingdom and what steps need to be taken by the firm to ensure it fully complies with its data protection obligations". People should continue to be vigilant and follow the advice from the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).
