Got SIM swapped last night. I don't use my cell for 2FA so all good. Friendly reminder to not have any of your 2FA as text! Use apps, etc. Also, how do I get my phone back working? ugh

Switch to @googlefi after getting you account back...

The human element will always be the biggest vulnerability when it comes to cybersecurity. Nearly impossible to brute force things nowadays, but social engineer some minimum wage employee at Verizon? Much more effective

Oof. Glad you practiced good security. Call the carrier to reprovision your device they should be able to help.

I got sim swapped in late 2017. I was on a call and it went dead. Lost control of my email in minutes. Verizon got hoodwink. Luckily had been listening to @laurashin's #unchained and she and so many guests had been advocating other methods (google auth, yubikey, etc.)

Wow so sorry. The risk of being a non-anon on Twitter I suppose. That what it’s come to.

That's one of the problems with using your real name on Twitter...you're basically doxing yourself. So yes I agree, use an Authenticator app instead.

Do a sim lock with passcode. It will prevent sim swapping.
