If you run on Dunkin’, listen up. Dunkin’ Donuts has issued a warning to its ‘DD Perks’ customers that a third party may have gained access to customers account information.

Information the third party could have accessed includes first and last names, usernames, 16-digit DD Perks account numbers, and DD Perks QR codes.

Dunkin’ says the breach was not internal to DD, but a third party may have obtained username and password information due to a security breach at another company on October 31, 2018 and used them to sign into DD Perks accounts.

Dunkin’ says it has launched an internal investigation into the breach and forced a password reset to all potentially affected accounts. The company is also replacing any potentially affected DD Perks stored valued cards.
