Sim Swapping is bigger than what we think

According to an article hitting the Kim Komando breaking news newsletter as things to know, we’re going to cover a few items as I get to read them but this one is dealing with Sim Swapping.

The FBI is reporting this to be a high problem now, and its bigger than most people think. Its not necessarily a security concern, until you find out that the scammer or perpetrator has taken your number through typical means of social engineering and phishing attempts.

The article SIM swapping is one of the most dangerous phone hacks – And it’s on the rise talks about 7 different things you can do to help protect yourself. Its not going to be a guarantee, but it will at least make it harder if the attack is successful for those people to take advantage of everything you have which include your bank accounts, social media, crypto currency accounts if you have them, or anything else on your device.

Instead of me highlighting what those 7 things are, one of them deals with passwords and their use. Another deals with what you post on social media. For 5 others, click on through to Komando’s coverage of this, and make sure you’re as protected as you can be. Make it a great day!
