The details that was able to disclosed to others accounts were name, address, phone numbers, call history and data usage too.

The company promptly started an internal investigation and urged those affected to contact the customer service, it also confirmed that no financial data was exposed.

Three UK has 9 millions subscriber, but company has assured that only some portion of customer data had been affected on this glitch.

One customer cited by The Guardian, Mark Thompson, said it was a “shocking breach of data privacy”. He wrote on Three UK’s Facebook page: “Care to explain just how my details have been shared, how many people have had access to my personal information, for how long, and how many of your other customers have had their details leaked by yourselves to other members of the public as well?”

“We are aware of a small number of customers who may have been able to view the mobile account details of other Three users using My3,” a spokesman said. “No financial details were viewable during this time and we are investigating the matter.”
This is not the first time that Three Mobile is on headlines, as earlier back in 2016 Three Mobile had suffered from the huge data breach where  about 6 millions users data were at risk.
