I read with great concern the article on medium about a SIM port hack where someone is able to port your SIM card to a phone that they control. The attacker then initiates a password reset intercepting your 2-factor authentication to reset your gmail account and gain access to it. The article is at:
How can I guard against a SIM port hack with my Ting account? Does Ting handle porting SIMs to new devices or is this handled by Sprint or T-Mobile? Does Ting have any safeguards against a SIM port attack? How do you verify when someone's identity who wants to port a SIM to another device? Can I set a PIN on my SIM to prevent it being ported?
Any information you could provide me on how to avoid a SIM port hack would be much appreciated.
