BETHANY, Ore. - Verizon Wireless announced upgraded privacy protections after KATU uncovered a glitch that exposed a woman's personal information.

Tomi Barnes says her contacts and possibly other data wound up in the phone of a stranger.

"I personally thought that I was actually safe going with Verizon because they're big on privacy," said Barnes, "but obviously not."
