Chick-fil-A user accounts reportedly hacked

Popular American fast-food chain, Chick-fil-A, said it was investigating reports of hacked user accounts.

“We are investigating suspicious activity on some customer accounts. We are committed to protecting customers’ data and are working quickly to resolve the issue,” Chick-fil-A said on its website.

Chick-fil-A emphasized that fraudulent activity was “not due to a compromise of Chick-fil-A Inc.’s internal systems.”

Users have been reporting fraudulent activity on their accounts. For example, according to WSB-TV, a Georgia woman reported crooks using her app to buy food in Maryland. Hackers broke into her app, loaded it with hundreds of dollars from her account, and ordered half of Chick-fil-A's menu.

The company warned customers to stay vigilant. If you observe any suspicious activity on your account, you should immediately change your password and remove stored payment information from your account.

“If funds were loaded to your account from your stored payment card that you did not authorize, please dispute the unauthorized transaction(s) with your financial institution. Resolution time of the suspicious fraudulent activity is dependent on your financial institution,” Chick-fil-A said.

Founded in 1946, Chick-fil-A operates nearly 3,000 restaurants in the US.
