LOS ANGELES - Nov. 26, 2021 - PRLog -- Personal Identity Theft and Data security are on the rise. We all seem to take our data security for granted these days, trusting the "big corporations" to protect us.

Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, TikTok, all Social Media. All of our life is "secured" by our phones through what is known as two-factor authentication or 2FA.  In theory, this secures your account from hackers "bad actors" that want to cause you harm and steal your life savings from your brokerage account, bank account, or Crypto account.

We have seen data leaks, data breaches, and massive hacker attacks

1. LinkedIn
June 2021
Impact: 700 million users

2. Facebook
April 2019
Impact: 533 million users

3. Marriott International (Starwood)
September 2018
Impact: 500 million customers

4. Adult Friend Finder
Date:
October 2016
Impact: 412.2 million accounts

5. T-Mobile
Date:
August 2021
Impact: 54 million accounts

The breached records include sensitive information:
  • Full names
  • Email addresses
  • Sexual orientation
  • Chat transcripts
  • Email correspondence transcripts
  • Password hashes
  • IP addresses
  • Payment logs
Many of the exposed email addresses are linked to cloud storage services. If hackers launch successful phishing attacks on users, they could gain deeper access to personal photos and business information.

Your cellphone could provide a way for cybercriminals to access your financial accounts.

The fraud is known as a SIM Swap, SIM swapping, SIM hacking, or SIM jacking,

Cybercriminals hijack your cellphone number and use it to gain access to your sensitive personal data and accounts.

How it works. You access your bank account that uses text-based two-factor authentication. You access your account by entering your user name and password. Your bank sends an access code to your cellphone for you to complete the log-in process.

But what if fraudsters are able to change the SIM card connected to your mobile number? Giving them control over that number — they'd receive the access code to your account.
