Several Sprint customers have said they are seeing other customers’ personal information in their online accounts.
One reader emailed TechCrunch with several screenshots describing the issue, warning that they could see other Sprint customers’ names and phone numbers. The reader said they informed the phone giant of the issue, and a Sprint representative said they had “several calls pertaining to the same issue.”
In all, the reader saw 22 numbers in a two-hour period, they said.
Several other customers complained of the same data exposing bug. It’s unclear how widespread the issue is or for how long the account information leak persisted.
