Mobile reveals data breach affecting prepaid customers”

T-Mobile reportedly responded that a "very small single digit percentage" of users were affected. T-Mobile said in its statement.

Our Cybersecurity team discovered and shut down malicious, unauthorized access to some information related to your T-Mobile prepaid wireless account. The only data accessed by a third-party was information associated with the prepaid service account, which includes names, billing addresses, phone numbers, accounts numbers, rate plan and features, as well as whether or not it has an global calling feature attached to it.

The telecom giant T-Mobile announced on Thursday that it suffered a data breach in which hackers accessed personal information of its prepaid wireless customers.

T-Mobile said today in a data breach notification that the account information of an undisclosed number of customers using the company's prepaid services was accessed by an unauthorized third-party. T-Mo does say that it's possible that some affected customers may not be notified because their contact info isn't up-to-date, so if that's the case with you, you can contact T-Mobile support for more info by dialing 611 from your T-Mo phone or 1-800-TMOBILE from any phone.

T-Mobile was previously hit by a data breach in August 2018, when the account information of around two million customers got stolen.

Have you been notified by T-Mobile about this data breach?

TmoNews reached out to the company to find out how many customers' information was compromised.
