Doordash's breach is different

Originally published at:


What’s likely to happen here if someone’s home address is exposed via this breach?

Say a woman hiding herself and her children is now located by an abusive ex husband for example. This Ex tracks them down to do harm using data from this breach.

Best case scenario is a celebrity gets harassed by a fan and that celebrity has the resources to sue Doordash into oblivion. Worst case scenario is someone gets murdered and these startups continue to ignore data data security.


I admit it - I’m the one who did it.

But it was only so I could steal Lizzo’s fries.

Not breached, but something to watch out for:


If you buy your house using an anonymous LLC do you use door dash?


Quite possibly yes? Titling your real estate under an anonymous LLC protects you because real estate titles and taxes are publicly available data that anyone can view via a government website. Putting your name, address, and cc info into a food delivery app to get a pizza is nowhere near the same thing, since the apps generally promise that your info is encrypted and stored safely.


Is anybody else finding it impossible to change their Doordash password? I am able to enter a new one on the appropriate page, and I get the two-factor authentication code (yeah, security!)… but then… nothing.

Just another this that makes this one different?

Quite possibly, yes. I’m in the middle of looking at doing an anonymous property lease because we’re opening an organizing center for some pretty controversial political issues and would rather not have someone be able to pull up the Secretary of State and County Auditor websites and end up with our home addresses to settle political scores. At the same time I have no reason to be particularly afraid of the burger delivery company. Sometimes anonymous purchases are in place to deal with the issues that come from easy universal access to information, rather than trying to provide a universal shield.


Yes. I had to go to the app on my phone and tell it I lost my password. Then I could change it. Otherwise it would not change. My wife was able to change it that way as well.


Thank you. That did the trick!


Of course not, that’s the butler’s job. :face_with_monocle:


Hell, if you have a birthdate, name, and last 4 of a person’s social in the state of Florida, you can enter them into the Fish & Game license website and get the person’s street address and other minor ID items served up to you if they’ve ever held any license. But hey, at least there’s no password to hack, amirite?!
