Earlier this month, Loblaws’ PC Plus announced some member points had been stolen, after the result of a fraud. Now, the company has reset passwords for PC Plus members, as they notified customers via email yesterday during the Family Day holiday.
According to the email above, customers need to click on the link in the email to reset their password, or visit the PC Plus website and go to the “forgot my password” link. Loblaws says users cannot reset passwords via the PC Plus iPhone app. The company goes on to say they “apologize for any inconvenience” and customers should “contact us immediately if you notice missing points or other unauthorized activity.”
The breach, according to PC Plus, is due to “passwords exposed through third party websites or weak passwords.”
