Tell the FTC: Hold T-Mobile Accountable
T-Mobile has once again violated the trust of consumers across the United States. In August, the company announced it had experienced yet another major data breach, its fifth in three years. This time, more than 50 million people — most of whom aren’t customers or never were — had their Social Security numbers, birthdates, drivers-license numbers and other sensitive information stolen. In exchange, the company has offered free credit-monitoring services and its CEO, Mike Sievert, has apologized for his company’s failures.
The company’s response is completely insufficient: The impact of having your Social Security number stolen is devastating and can have life-long negative impacts. The FTC must join the FCC in investigating the breach and protecting consumers.
Demand that the FTC hold T-Mobile accountable for its latest data breach.
