How To Keep Your Starbucks Account Safe From Hackers

If you use the Starbucks app, now would be a really good time to review your account settings.
Attackers have been exploiting features of the app to steal hundreds of dollars from unsuspecting customers, and Starbucks says its users' poor passwords are to blame.
It's hard to say how many people have been affected by the attacks, first reported by writer Bob Sullivan, but searches on Twitter and Facebook reveal hundreds of complaints about fraudulent charges from the app. Starbucks spokesperson Tom Kuhn told Mashable "it is not a widespread issue." Still, it doesn't hurt to take a few steps to save your lattes by upping the strength of your account password. Use a combination of numbers, letters, and punctuation marks to get the highest level of security.
