In the past, our most important financial numbers have been our social security number and bank account numbers. Today, it is just as important to protect your mobile phone number.
Text messages are often used by banks, businesses and payment services to verify your identity when you request updates to your account. Savvy scammers know that by hijacking your mobile phone number they can assume your identity, intercept security protocols sent to your phone, and gain access to your financial and social media accounts.
Though our phone numbers seem like an innocuous piece of information about us, they can be dangerous when in the wrong hands.
Here’s what hackers can do with your number, how they find it, and what you can do to stop them.
