SIM-swap attack, iPad OS, Mate X delay, Pixel 4 reveal (MobileTechRoundup show #472)
A week from hell started when a hacker took over my SIM card and Google account and it continues today. Hopefully, this podcast serves as a PSA to prepare for an account takeover and lock down your cloud services as much as possible.
I started out last week with a rude awakening late at night as my Twitter and Google accounts were taken over after my SIM card/phone number was stolen even though my SIM remained in my iPhone XS. I describe on of the worst weeks I've had in a long time on MobileTechRoundup show #472 with Kevin offering up some precautions for all to take. While I had two-factor authentication enabled, a cell phone text message isn't always the best means of this secondary authentication.
