Why You Need To Protect your Sim Card With Pin Code.

I will be talking about the process of adding a SIM PIN to help prevent anyone from accessing precious account information or using your data plan.



%89 of us have protected the data on their phone to the point where no one can access it without knowing the various codes or have the exact biometric pattern of your fingerprint. 

But what about your phone number or your voice/data plans? Even with the best protection on your smartphone directory structure, someone could simply remove your SIM card — which holds your phone number, security data, billing information, Bank BVN. and other bits of data — and place it in their device.

You have to know that the password lock on your phone — doesn't protect your SIM card.
That filesystem encryption — doesn't protect your SIM card.

Recently they have been trending hacks, people losing money from their account, after some minutes they lost their phone. 

I will be talking about, how you can protect your precious data? There's only one way: a SIM card PIN. Now that we've established the why, before we get into the how of this, I need to lay down a warning or two.

A SIM card typically comes with a default PIN mostly 0000, but it's not used for locking purposes. The SIM card also has an associated PIN Unlock Key (PUK). If you attempt to do a SIM PIN Lock, and you fail to guess the original PIN, the SIM will be locked with the PUK. If you run into this situation, you'll most likely have to log into your mobile account to retrieve this information or contact your Network service provider (customer care)

Steps on how to activate your Sim Pin Code

  • Open your phone settings.
  • security Settings.
  • If you're using Samsung, Open other Security Settings
  • Set up Sim card Lock 
  • It will prompt you to enter your sim card Pin, 0000  
  • Change the pin to your own code. is compulsory you change it..
If you have any problem changing your pin code drop your comment for guidance.. 

Share to everyone so they can start using Sim pin code, to stop the trending fraud thank you
