Loblaws warns of security breach with PC Plus program, resets all passwords


Loblaws has announced a potential security breach on its PC Plus rewards program and has automatically reset all passwords.

In an email to customers, Loblaws states, “In recent weeks, we have observed some unusual activity on select PC Plus accounts. Our investigation indicates that the PC Plus system has been the target of fraud, resulting in some members having their points stolen. We believe the principle cause is passwords exposed through third party websites or weak passwords.”

This breach impacts online activity and through its PC Mobile app, which is available on Android and iOS devices.

“We take the security of your account and personal information very seriously. In order to better protect this information, we have reset your password,” stated Loblaws.
