Did AT&T Expose Your Personal Information?

California residents may be entitled to up to $750.

  • You may qualify for this claim if your personal data was exposed in the AT&T data breach.
  • You should sign up if your personal data was compromised in the AT&T data breach.
  • All claims are backed by Labaton Keller Sucharow, a national law firm that has recouped over $25 Billion for people like you.

AT&T recently reported a significant data breach incident impacting more than 70 million current and former AT&T customers nationwide. According to TechCrunch, three years ago, a threat actor teased an alleged massive theft of AT&T customer data, which included names, home addresses, phone numbers, Social Security numbers, and dates of birth. AT&T said back in 2021 that the leaked data “does not appear to have come from our systems.” Now, AT&T is acknowledging that the stolen data is authentic and belongs to AT&T customers. According to The New York Times, AT&T is currently conducting an investigation but claims it did not know whether the leaked data “originated from AT&T or one of its vendors” and that it “does not have evidence of unauthorized access to its systems resulting in theft of the data set.” A company representative did not address specific questions from The New York Times about how the breach happened or why it went unnoticed for so long.

Labaton is investigating private arbitration claims against AT&T on behalf of current and former AT&T customers who were notified that their personal information was exposed as a result of this breach. California residents, in particular, could be entitled to compensation of up to $750 under state data privacy laws.

What is the California Privacy Rights Act and California Consumer Privacy Act?
The California Privacy Rights Act (“CPRA”) and California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) are comprehensive privacy laws in California. They aims to protect individuals’ data privacy rights. Companies that are subject to data theft or breaches can be subject to statutory damages up to $750 for exposing certain categories of consumers’ information.
How do I protect myself after a data breach?
Data breaches are becoming increasingly commonplace. However, you can do a few things to protect yourself if you think you have had your information exposed in a data breach. First, you should change the passwords for all your online accounts. Most people use the same or similar passwords for all their online accounts. So, if one password was exposed, there is a chance a hacker could gain access to all your online accounts. Second, it is important to monitor your online accounts for any suspicious activity. Be on the lookout for strange charges that you do not recognize or any phishing emails.
What is arbitration?
Arbitration is a private dispute resolution process. Your claim will not be filed in court. Your claim will be decided by an arbitrator, who is a neutral person chosen by you and the company. We can select an arbitrator for you who is fair and neutral.
Is arbitration confidential?
Yes, arbitration is a confidential, private process.
