    San Francisco-based TaskRabbit reported a cybersecurity incident and have shut down its app and website while the company investigates.

    "We understand how important your personal information is and are working with an outside cybersecurity firm and law enforcement to determine the specifics," TaskRabbit said in a statement Monday.

    The company said it will be in contact with its users as more information is available. Users should also change their passwords if they have used the same one for different websites and apps.

    TaskRabbit, a handyman-for-hire service, was acquired by Ikea in September, CNET reported.
