SIM hijacking, the new frightening frontier of cyber crime.

SIM hijacking, or SIM swapping, is essentially the process of hackers activating your phone number onto a SIM card of their possession. The process helps them take over your phone number, so next time someone tries to access one of your online account, the cybercriminals are the ones receiving the verification passcode instead of you. This is usually effective when someone wants to reset your password or already knows your password and wants to go through the 2 step verification process. And this can have a devastating domino effect. Watch this video by and about Matthew Miller, ZDNet collaborator. Call 2A Solve at (845) 264-9920 to know more about this and how to protect yourself.
