On Thursday afternoon, it appeared that the official Twitter account of PLDT for its customer service was hacked by an Anonymous group.
KAMI learned that the hackers urged PLDT to provide a better service to its customers, especially now that there is a pandemic and most people are working from their houses.
From its Twitter handle “PLDT Cares” the hackers changed it to “PLDT Doesn’t Care.”
“As the pandemic arises, Filipinos need fast internet to communicate with their loved ones. Do your job. The corrupt fear us, the honest support us, the heroic join us. We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us,” it said in the tweet.

In a different tweet, the hackers also threatened another Internet service provider, Globe Telecom.
“@enjoyGLOBE You’re next. #PLDTHacked,” it said in the tweet.
Ironically, PLDT has been tweeting about privacy and securing the Wi-Fi networks of their customers to avoid hackers from using it. The hackers of PLDT retweeted the previous tweet and said, “How ironic. Keep safe. #PLDTHacked.”
In a Facebook post, PLDT Home released a now-deleted statement that they temporarily shut down its PLDT Twitter account due to “security issues.”
PLDT is one of the biggest telecommunications providers in the country. It was founded in 1928 and until now, it continues to provide service to most Filipinos.
