Air Canada's Smartphone App Data Breach

This data breach may have resulted in the theft of personal information from thousands of customers, including passport information. Authorities are investigating but don't know how it happened or who was responsible. All they did do was confirm that Air Canada has a weak customer password system.

All customers who have an account with Air Canada are being asked to reset their passwords using the new and more stringent guidelines.

This breach only applies to the app. It does not apply to anyone using the website. Also, credit card numbers are encrypted and were not listed in the data stolen.
