O2 apologised for technical problem

O2 has apologised for a technical problem which caused users' phone numbers to be disclosed when using its mobile data. The company said it normally only passed numbers to "trusted partners". A problem during routine maintenance meant that from 10 January numbers could have been seen by other websites.

"We investigated, identified and fixed it this afternoon. We would like to apologise for the concern we have caused," the company said.

The Information Commissioner's Office had said that it would speak to O2 "to better understand what has happened".

In a blog post the company said: "We are in contact with the Information Commissioner's office, and we will be co-operating fully."
