What Happened?

On March 30, 2024, AT&T, the largest wireless carrier in the United States, admitted to experiencing a data breach affecting over 7.6 million current customers and 65 million former customers. Despite evidence of customers’ account information surfacing on the dark web as early as 2021, AT&T had previously denied being a victim of such a breach. Recently, AT&T began notifying individuals whose information may have been impacted.

This incident is not the first time AT&T has faced a substantial data breach. In 2023, the company revealed that information belonging to 9 million customers had been compromised due to a breach involving one of its third-party vendors. Additionally, in 2014, AT&T settled an FCC investigation concerning privacy violations by paying a $25 million fine. This action was prompted by the exposure of approximately 280,000 customers’ names along with either full or partial Social Security numbers.

The recent breach at AT&T has left victims deeply troubled by the exposure of their personal information, notably their addresses and Social Security numbers. Unlike credit card details, which can be promptly replaced, altering such sensitive data presents significant challenges for those affected. Moreover, this valuable information is highly sought after on illicit markets, fetching substantial sums. Hackers often retain stolen data for over a year before employing it for identity theft. Consequently, the repercussions of fraudulent activities resulting from this breach could endure for years.

If you are/were an AT&T customer, your personal information could potentially be compromised, placing it within the reach of cybercriminals. Given this scenario, it is of utmost importance that you address this matter with a sense of urgency and contact our highly qualified Data Breach Lawyers. These attorneys can effectively protect your legal rights and ensure that those responsible for causing harm, including AT&T, are held accountable, whether you are currently subscribed or have been in the past.

By selecting a qualified Data Breach Lawyer, you can be assured that your interests are protected thoroughly during the entire case, providing you with peace of mind.
