The users either had their data viewed including names, addresses, phone numbers, plan rates, and other account info. Others fell victim to an unauthorized SIM swap, and another group of users facing both. T-Mobile support team were able to regain access to their SIM.

Most of the time the hacker gains access to the victim’s text messages so they can access online accounts. They receive accessed via two-factor authentication codes sent to hackers swapped phone number.

Now we are looking at the fifth breach T-Mobile has suffered since 2018. The latest was not as big as the first 4 that affected millions of customers. None the less,  due to these repeated attacks, it’s clear that T-Mobile needs to do more to protect its customers’ information or their customers need to seek a stronger protected company.

The data breach earlier this year in August, was one of the biggest data breaches ever for a cell carrier. The leek affected 50 million customers across both postpaid and prepaid accounts and caused the FCC to launch an investigation.
