WHAT’S THE ISSUE?
The 2022 T-Mobile data breach affected 37 million T-Mobile customers, compromising at least your name, billing address, email, phone number, date of birth, T-Mobile account number and information such as the number of lines on the account and plan features. Further investigation may reveal that additional information was compromised. Data was accessed by a hacker in November 2022, and T-Mobile says it first detected the breach more than a month later. T-Mobile customers have suffered data hacks due to T-Mobile’s lax security eight times since 2018.

As of Jan. 20, 2023, victims of the data breach have yet to be notified by the company directly if their information was breached. Of T-Mobile’s 110 million U.S. customers, this breach affected at least 37 million.
WHAT INFORMATION WAS STOLEN?
T-Mobile has revealed to the public that stolen data includes name, billing address, email, phone number, date of birth, T-Mobile account number and information such as the number of lines on the account and plan features of at least 37 million T-Mobile customers. As the investigation is ongoing, it may be revealed that additional information was accessed.
2022 T-MOBILE DATA BREACH EXPLAINED
According to an interview, the hacker(s) carried out the data breach on or around Nov. 25, 2022, and so far those responsible remain unidentified. The stolen information was obtained through a single Application Programming Interface, T-Mobile said. Following the breach of customer data affecting nearly 40 million of its users, T-Mobile took more than a month to announce the breach and has yet to individually notify each affected customer as many state laws require.
DATA BREACH IMPACTS
T-Mobile customers whose data was stolen in the 2022 T-Mobile data breach must now take steps to protect themselves and mitigate the damages caused by the data breach. According to reports, identity theft is the most common consequence of a data breach and happens to about 65% of data breach victims. Consumers lost more than $56 billion to identity theft and fraud in 2020 alone, and over 75% of identity theft victims reported emotional distress.
Because T-Mobile did not protect its data properly, victims of the November 2022 T-Mobile data breach will be forced to take all steps possible to mitigate damages caused by the breach. Those whose data was compromised will likely face out-of-pocket costs for obtaining credit reports, credit freezes, credit monitoring services and other protective measures to deter and detect identity theft.
