+ 5 2 Factor Authentication - Don't Use Your Cell #
As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, my phone got sim swapped allowing my Coinbase account and email to get hacked. It appears someone social engineered Verizon customer service reps. I thought I had decent security because my financial accounts were set up with 2 Factor Authentication. However, I was wrong. A much better solution is to use an Authenticator App such as Authy. This way if someone takes over your phone number they still can't access your accounts. Most financial websites are easy to set up with an Authenticator and simply requires going into your security settings and scanning a QR code.
My advice is take action now. Only takes a few minutes. If you Google "sim swap Coinbase" you will find dozens of stories of this happening with some loosing hundreds of thousands. You will not get your $ back as their response is they can't be responsible if you didn't secure your device.
