Not my Donut account. Is nothing sacred to these beasts.
The US state of New York is suing food chain Dunkin Donuts for what is says is an illegal lapse in computer security. NY Attorney General Letitia James said today the complaint stems from a 2015 raid on Dunkin's website: fraudsters broke into individual customer accounts, stole those victims' payment card info from the …
This article "raised" some serious issues that had been "glazed" over. It's a shame Dunkin decided to "fritter" away this opportunity to protect its customers. Obviously, we are left with no reason for other retailers to be "jelly" about Dunkin's website security, which seems a bit "old-fashioned".
People are morons and will gladly give up their personal information for the occasional free donut, showing that they have no fundamental care regarding their personal details yet expect OTHERS to do it for them.
"You're not American" has begun to mean 'So, you're not a idiot, mindless sheep, huh?' when referencing these situations (always remember that, sadly, I'm Amerikun).
4 years ago I refused a salad shop bonus card after I was told that I must register online with my phone number. Screw you!!
I seem to be one of the few Americans who actually values their own space, and are not willing to give it up to greedy corporations for a pittance.
There are more than a few of us. As an info sec person (does it matter what country I live in) my banking is only accessible in person, I have never done business with any Amazon crap. I don't have auto payment on anything. There are no non-work apps on my phone. I have zero trust (as I look behind myself at my desk lol) and all my passwords are 24+ characters - help.....
Everyone and their dog wants your personal details! Why on earth do dunkin donuts need you to create an account? I assume you get some kind of incentive like a free donut for every 10 you buy or something. What's wrong with just giving you a stamp card like my local coffee shop?
Marketers everywhere are obsessed with "personalisation" and want to hoover up all your data even when it is blatantly unnecessary like this, or just sell it on. The other day I tried to install Nvidia's utility to keep your graphics drivers up to date and even that wanted me to create an account (no thank you).
