In August 2021, T-Mobile experienced a significant cybersecurity breach, resulting in the theft of data from about 50 million existing and potential customers. The information compromised included customer addresses, drivers' licenses, and social security numbers. This breach was orchestrated by a 21-year-old who claimed to have accessed approximately 106GB of T-Mobile's data. The exposure of such sensitive personal information potentially puts millions of individuals at risk of identity theft and fraud, raising serious privacy and security concerns.
