The data comprised include names and billing addresses, phone numbers, account numbers, rate plan and features, such as whether an international calling is in service, T-Mobile US said.
However, the company assured its users that their key information is safe, including their credit card information, social security numbers or passwords.
It noted that it has notified law enforcement about the breach, without elaborating on further details such as when and how long the hack took place, how the company responded to fix the loophole, or whether its database was compromised.
T-Mobile US, which has more than 80 million users, promised to have a number of safeguards in place to protect its customers' "personal information from unauthorized access." ■
