The stock trading service said it discovered the issue on Monday night, when it found "some user credentials" stored in readable formats on its internal systems.

"Your Robinhood password may have been included," Robinhood said in the email. "We resolved this issue, and after thorough review, found no evidence that this information was accessed by anyone outside of our response team."

Still, it recommends changing your password.

A Robinhood spokesperson told CNET sister site ZDNet via phone that not all users were impacted, but did not say how many were. Passwords are now being hashed using the Bcrypt algorithm, visita la web according to a help page, ZDNet added.
