The telecommunications company agreed to settle the $350million lawsuit stemming from the 2021 criminal cyberattack.

This is where a breach exposed millions of user addresses, pins, and other personal information.

The company will reimburse those who qualify up to $25,000 if they had to spend time or money to recover from fraud or identity theft relating to the breach – also known as Lost Time.

T-Mobile has also agreed to pay for two years of McAfee’s ID Theft Protection Service to anyone who even believes they were a victim of the hack.

MORE T-MOBILE DATA BREACHES

Just this week, T-Mobile announced another data breach where a hacker accessed the personal data of around 37million customers.

Much like the other breach, stolen data including name, billing address, email, phone number, and date of birth.

The company also revealed the hacker got account numbers and numbers of lines on account and plan features.

While this breach wasn’t detected until January 5, 2023, an SEC filing revealed that the hacker had been stealing data since November 25.

Within a day of being alerted to the hack, T-mobile patched the vulnerability and revealed that no company systems were breached, according to the SEC filing.

“Our investigation is still ongoing, but the malicious activity appears to be fully contained at this time, and there is currently no evidence that the bad actor was able to breach or compromise our systems or our network,” the company added.

T-Mobile customers who feel they’ve been breached should be contacted directly via a push notification from the company.

If you have not received a notification but are still worried about your data, you can call 611 or any T-Mobile phone number to check with customer service about the status of your account.

The U.S. Sun revealed another settlement where customers can grab cash.
