T-Mobile provided an update regarding a data breach on Wednesday. During the update, the company confirmed the data of 48 million people was compromised.
Hackers were able to access the data of past, present, and even potential customers. The personal data of more than 40 million people that was stolen included names, dates of birth, driver’s license information, and social security numbers.
On top of that, another 7.8 million postpaid customers also had some of their data compromised, and customer names, account PIN numbers, and phone numbers were stolen from 850,000 current prepaid customers.
This is the fourth time T-Mobile has been hit with a major data breach since 2015. What else do we know about the breach and how did the company respond?
