Adidas said it has "no reason" to suspect that hackers stole credit card or fitness information from the affected customers.

There's been a recent Adidas data breach that customers should be aware of. Hackers stole information from millions of users' information that includes usernames, passwords, and contact information. However, if you've purchased products from the Adidas US websites there's a chance your contact details have been leaked and Adidas will be contacting you.

Consumers potentially affected by the possible data breach are thought to be those who bought products on the company's USA website. The company wrote that an unauthorized party has claimed to have acquired "limited data associated with certain Adidas consumers".

The company does note that not all information was stolen in the Adidas data breach.

Data breaches are occurring more and more often these days and it's apparent the companies that collect our data aren't too interested in keeping it safe.

Companies need to do more to protect their customers' private information.

Adidas says it is conducting a forensic review and is alerting customers who could have been affected.

"Adidas is committed to the privacy and security of its consumers' personal data", the statement said. Adidas immediately began taking steps to determine the scope of the issue and to alert relevant consumers.

Law enforcement firms and security companies are working with Adidas to identify the source of the breach and fully assess the extent of the stolen information.

The company said Thursday it is alerting millions of consumers about the breach and had not yet determined a full tally of those affected.
