Verizon customers take note: Verizon’s Visible confirms accounts were breached – report

From FierceWireless:

Some customer accounts for the Verizon-backed all-digital prepaid brand Visible were breached after bad actors obtained password and login information from “outside sources,” the company confirmed on social media Wednesday.
