The SIM Swap Fix That the US Isn't Using

SIM swap hackers rely on intercepting a one-time password sent by text after stealing a victim's banking credentials, or by using the phone number as a password reset fallback.

Where/how does Ting relate to this threat?

  • Hi Steven,

     SIM card hijacking and account security is something that we take seriously here at Ting. It is a conversation that has come up from time to time and there was a great response by one of our team members that I'm going to link you to here. It goes into depth on the subject and has some great links about the situation with SIM hijacking.
