People started to realise how important it is to keep their virtual wallet secure and they started to use 2FA which is a good thing but the bad thing is that we tend to overestimate the level of security that 2FA provides.
The problem is when using your phone is that your phone number can be hijacked pretty easily using identity theft.
And when that happens you are no longer in control.
That makes you wonder how can you be safe?
Few simple things you can do:
1. Buy a totally new SIM card and do not use your phone number for 2FA
2. Don’t keep your wallet and your identification on the same phone
3. Don’t allow your phone to automatically connect to Wi-Fi networks
4. Minimise smartphone browsing and try to avoid websites that you don’t know or trust
