For any of you who are using their mobile phone numbers for phone banking or verifying your online email and social account please be advised. My niece was hacked last week and the hackers got the PAC code from 3 and transferred the number to another networking( in her case Vodafone) and 3 have not done anything to help. They have washed their hands off. The hacker had access to their bank accounts, emails, social accounts as she had used that phone number to verify those accounts , They and even tried to get the deposit back from the landlord after going through her emails. 3 don't have any security policies in place for anyone to obtain your PAC code. It is also a good idea to remove your phone number associated with any online accounts and use an authenticator app like google authenticator for 2 factor verification authentication. This is because if your SIM card is hacked and you have associated your phone number, the recovery code will go to the hacker and not you. With 2FA like google authenticator the code is on the app and not associated with a mobile number.
