T-Mobile is reporting that 37 million current customers were affected in a November 2022 data breach.
According to the report filed on Thursday, a “bad actor” accessed the personal information of account holders, including their names, billing addresses, emails, phone numbers, dates of birth, T-Mobile account numbers, and information regarding the level of service they have with T-Mobile.
The “bad actor” did not access social security numbers, credit card information, government ID numbers, passwords, PINs, or financial information and T-Mobile’s systems and network do not appear to have been hacked.
T-Mobil reported that once the breach was discovered, an external cybersecurity team was hired to investigate the source of the hack and get it “fully contained.”
The company says it is working with law enforcement and has begun to notify the customers who were affected.
“Protecting our customers’ data remains a top priority,” T-Mobile said in a statement. “We will continue to make substantial investments to strengthen our cybersecurity program.”
