On Thursday, T-Mobile said it suffered a data breach that affected a “small amount” of prepaid customers.
In a statement, the company said:
“Our cybersecurity team discovered and shut down malicious, unauthorized access to some information related to your T-Mobile prepaid wireless account. We promptly reported this to authorities.”
The exposed information includes:
- Billing addresses
- Phone numbers
- Account numbers
- Rate plans
Luckily, however, passwords, financial information, and social security numbers were not impacted.
T-Mobile has notified affected customers via SMS and is urging victims to change the pin associated with their account.
