Regarding: Combating SIM Theft.
I can’t believe that this hasn’t been done already (phone accounts get hi-jacked). Setting up a pass phrase, so that if I ever need a new SIM, I have to give the pass phrase before I can activate said SIM.
maybe have an email that you can get the sim activated
Maybe a short pin rather than a password.
It needs to be addressed because of the amount of gaffthat as been hacked and add there account taken over....
Couldn’t it be done in conjunction with a code sent to your email?
Texting a given word to giffgaff on said sim and receiving a security code to a preset email address.
Using a WiFi connection the phone could receive emails.
Then type code on keypad to unlock sim or sync... I’ve just got up and can’t remember the question...breakfast time I think.
Perhaps having, as my bank does, a security question that only you know the answer to.......such as.....what's the name of your first pet or something else personal.
I've now supported this idea
I like this idea
could be handy
Glad to see this is being looked into! It would be great to have this security feature to safeguard us all.
