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.
I think a security question that you would only know .ie. like fathers middle name or mums maiden name etc or even a one time pass code to protect and secure you sim card every bit of security is important and even more know days as theres to much fraud and scams happening x
Certainly an example of timely thinking, within weeks of this suggestion Giffgaff members were suffering a sustained attack from some determined and persistent scammers who ended up making summer 2019 a miserable one for many members who had their account compromised and others who had their banking details taken.
Much of this was on the premise of a unauthorised SIM swap.
This if in place or something similar would have saved many members a lot of worry and headaches and members on H&S and Giffgaff agents a lot of time responding to requests for help.
I agree like this ifea
u must set harder passwords like not the same password for any accounts app banking anything like that and make sure it’s unique to u only and never ever but 123 or 1234 so easy to hack!
Can be very troublesome if someone forgets their PIN. Keep in mind that both kids and the elderly may have trouble remembering, and will make it much harder for them to solve this issue without assistance.
I like this idea
