JPMorgan Chase disclosed Thursday that about 76 million households and 7 million small businesses had data compromised. 

The company, however, stated there is no evidence the breach impacted customer account numbers, passwords, user IDs, dates of birth or Social Security numbers. 

Rather, the data includes names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses, according to the company. 

JPMorgan Chase customers are not liable for unauthorized transactions on their accounts if they promptly alert the company, according to the Securities and Exchange Commission filing. To date, JPMorgan Chase reported it had not seen any unusual customer fraud related to the breach. 

"The Firm continues to vigilantly monitor the situation and is continuing to investigate the matter," the company reported. "In addition, the Firm is fully cooperating with government agencies in connection with their investigations."
