Tips on how to help prevent phone hijacking Mobile phone carriers are aware of this crime and are taking steps to ensure that their customers are taken care of. Most mobile phone carriers now request customers to create a PIN. Whenever a customer contacts the service provider, the PIN is requested. If you think you do not have a PIN, call your cell phone provider and make sure you didn’t opt to disable it when you signed up. If your phone receives “no signal” or says, “Emergency calls only,” even after restarting the phone, then use another phone to call your provider and have them check the status immediately. Phone hijacking can also happen via phishing attacks. Do not click on suspicious links. Malware embedded in links can secretly download on your device. When in doubt, open a browser and type in the address you wish to visit. Do not publish your phone number on your public profile on social media. Be discreet about mentioning cryptocurrency on social media. Cryptocurrency is the one of the most sought-after forms of currency in this type of crime*. Review your credit card bills, bank statements and phone bills. If something doesn’t add up, report it immediately. Do not use the same usernames and passwords across several websites. Make your passwords long, complicated and difficult to guess. Criminals are constantly finding newer ways to scam people. They use a combination of technology and tactics to gain access to information. As in this case, criminals use personal information to deceive phone company customer service representatives. Phone hijacking is just one of the many crimes that may lead to identity theft. Identity thieves also use phishing as a means to gain access to phones. Seemingly harmless links that carry with it harmful malware are sent as a text message or an email to the victim. Upon clicking on it them, these links download information from your phone and broadcast it to devices operated by identity thieves. To protect your devices from malware and viruses that steal information, invest in reliable security software like Norton Security. Identity theft may happen offline too. That is why having an identity theft protection service helps. When this service finds uses of your Social Security number or other personal information, it will send you a notification.? If you know that you didn’t use your number recently, you can let your identity theft protection service know, and they will work with you to fix the potential identity theft. LifeLock is one such service that offers you identity protection. The unique combination of Norton Security and LifeLock offers comprehensive protection that is needed to explore the digital world safely.https://www.ttspy.com/remotely-listen-to-the-phone.html
