Saying that as many as 55,000 Idahoans may be at risk, Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden sent out an alert Wednesday warning a data breach of a third-party server housing T-Mobile data could compromise personal data. Worldwide, the data breach may impact more than 15,000,000 T-Mobile customers.

Wasden said the the breach specifically impacts consumers who applied for T-Mobile USA contracts (or non-prepaid cellphone contracts) between September 2013 and September 16, 2015. Hackers have reportedly gained access to names, addresses, Social Security numbers, birth dates, passport numbers and other information used in T- Mobile credit reports. Wasden added that no payment card or banking information was obtained in the breach. 

Wasden said consumers should be closely monitoring their financial statements, review their credit reports and sign up for a free, two-year credit monitoring service offered by T-Mobile at protectmyid.com/security/incident or by calling Experian at 1-866-369-0422.
