The online photo department of CVS is operated independently, and it’s now temporarily closed down.

CVS-PHOTO-HACKED has been hacked.

Currently, at the following announcement is displayed:

“We have been made aware that customer credit card information collected by the independent vendor who manages and hosts may have been compromised.

Customer registrations related to online photo processing and are completely separate from,, on line bill pay and our pharmacies. Financial transactions on,, and in-store are not affected.

Nothing is more central to us than protecting the privacy and security of our customer information, including financial information. We are working closely with the vendor and our financial partners and will share updates as we know more.
