SIM security

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.

Thanks

maybe have an email that you can get the sim activated

Maybe a short pin rather than a password.

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.

Glad to see this is being looked into! It would be great to have this security feature to safeguard us all.
