    Starbucks denies mobile payment hack

    May 19th, 2015

    Starbucks has issued a statement denying its mobile payment app has been hacked, following a report by investigative journalist Bob Sullivan. The article claimed hackers had recently stolen money from several Starbucks customers by gaining access to their credit card information through the coffee chain’s app and using the auto-load function. “Starbucks takes the obligation to protect customers’ information seriously,” the company says. “News reports that the Starbucks mobile app has been hacked are false.”
