    I know this video is a little old but cell phone fraud like this happens a lot, and I work in a phone. if I ever get uneasy feeling about someone trying to get phones I turn them away, but the amount of fraud case I have handled in terms of directing them to the appropriate people is insane.

    Over 3 years later and SIM swapping attacks are still prominent...don't use SMS as your multi-factor auth, folks!

    Get a Fido2/U2F key and quit using your fucking cell phone.... YOU'RE A TECH VIDEO GUY. Why the hell you using old tech? lol It's been known for two years that a phone isn't an appropriate safeguard anymore. So you DIDN'T have appropriate safeguards in place.

    So basically you got hacked because you're just too lazy to use a VoIP phone number( Try Google Voice, it's free) and someone did a SIM swapping? Jesus least use a burner

    This makes me glad I've never trusted SMS as an authentication factor. I've always used TOTP (Google Authenticator, LastPass Authenticator, Sophos Authenticator, etc.), which doesn't send anything from the server to your phone during login. (You can get a code anytime and the server won't even know until you type it in.) TOTP was available earlier than SMS on most websites, and it's no less convenient once you've set it up (which is simple). Unfortunately, some websites (including a bank I have to deal with) only support (and force!) SMS, not TOTP, which is an even bigger inconvenience than just not trusting it, because I don't have a phone with phone service currently, so I can't receive text messages.

    I still reference this video as proof that sms 2FA is simply garbage and should be scrapped altogether. RSA or google auth is more trustworthy.

    As for "lost password" gibberish, sending password recovery email to another email address (which also requires 2FA) to me is safer than just letting some single point of failure SMS/authentication call (i'm looking at you, paypal) resolve the issue.

    I also hope that whoever screwed up by handing over a sim card to a random third party got fired
