Were Amazon user accounts hacked when Amazon Hub lockers were added as a default delivery address? No, that's partly false: Amazon users did have their default delivery addresses changed to Hub lockers but Amazon said that was an error caused by the company and not a hack. There is no evidence that the change was the result of a hack.
Amazon got hacked. For USA based people, check your amazon account. Hackers added HUB lockers as your default delivery addresses. Remove it! I had 2 added to mine.

Check your accounts.. I found a hub address that I didn't add.
