Time to change the passwords.

Card-carrying Dunkin’ Donuts fans may have had their benefits card information compromised. Dunkin’ Brands Inc. issued a statement Thursday warning DD Perks members that a security breach may have allowed a third-party access to costumers’ names, email addresses and 16-digit account numbers.

According to the international coffee chain, which boasts more than 12,000 stores, “Dunkin’ did not experience a data security breach involving its internal systems,” but they warned that some customer information may have been obtained by outsiders through “other companies” with a gap in their security systems.

Dunkin’ Brands suggested hackers may have accessed the DD Perk accounts of customers who use the same password for other websites and suggest that users change their security information. Dunkin’ also asked customers to create a unique password to use solely for their DD Perk accounts.

DD Perk members receive five points for every $1 spent on food and beverages. A free drink is rewarded after a club member acquires 200 points.
