Sim swap protection for prepaid?
greentree12345

Hello,

I'm a Verizon Prepaid customer. So far I don't see any options to enable a PIN or have any layer of security to prevent sim swapping or hijacking with my phone number on Verizon to a crook.

Is it possible to setup either a PIN number or a note on the account to say "No porting the number to a device unless user is physically present at a store with government ID?"

The number lock feature doesn't appear to be supported on prepaid only postpaid per the docs.

Thanks,

Not all features available for postpaid accounts are available for prepaid accounts. 

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
