T-Mobile data breach exposes approximately 37 million accounts



(Reuters) — Wireless carrier T-Mobile said on Thursday it was investigating a data breach that may have exposed 37 million postpaid and prepaid accounts.

It’s the second major cyber attack against T-Mobile in less than two years and comes months after the carrier agreed to upgrade its data security to resolve disputes related to a 2021 incident that compromised information on an estimated 76.6 million people.

The company identified malicious activity on Jan. 5 and contained it within a day, it said, adding that no sensitive data such as financial information was exposed.

However, T-Mobile added that basic customer data — such as name, billing address, email and phone number — was breached and that it had begun notifying affected customers. The company has more than 1

10 million subscribers.

A spokesman for the Federal Communications Commission said the regulator had opened an investigation into the incident.

T-Mobile declined to comment on the investigation.
