Sim swap protection for prepaid?


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.


Re: Sim swap protection for prepaid?

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.
