Air Canada is warning users who entered their passport information into the airline's app that users' passport numbers may have been stolen after a data breach caused the loss of customers' personal information, the BBC reports.

Why it matters: If passport numbers were stolen from the app, thousands of customers could be at risk for ID fraud. The airline has previously been criticized for weak password securit y measures, according to the BBC, and this breach may have been a result of that.
