A settlement was reached and filed in the T-Mobile US Inc. data breach class action lawsuit. As part of the settlement, T-Mobile denies any wrongdoing. In August of 2021, T-Mobile announced a data breach of its systems that affected more than 76.6 million customers, which included former and prospective customers. The breach accessed sensitive data such as Social Security numbers, names, addresses, birth dates, and driver’s license information.
The settlement states that T-Mobile is to pay $350 million with an added $150 million to go towards data security upgrades. Eligible class members may receive $25, or $100 for California residents. Some members may also receive up to $25,000 for out-of-pocket losses. All class members may receive two years of identity theft protection.
The class settlement has not been approved by the court yet.
