Hackers broke into a server and made off with names, driver license numbers, and other personal information belonging to more than 15 million US consumers who applied for cellular service from T-Mobile.

Sigh. I'm on T-Mobile and most likely affected. I already have free monitoring from the Target hack. It looks like I can add two more years of monitoring for free.
I really wish my state (WA) offered free credit locking. And free lifetime credit monitoring. At this point, credit locking/monitoring should be free for everyone, at least until companies can guarantee the security of our data.
Give me a museum and I'll fill it. (Picasso) Give me a forum ...

I have taken to assuming my personal information is in the wind. The Chinese got it from OPM. Target gave away some more. Think how many outfits never even caught the hack. My credit has been frozen for many years and will remain so.
