What To Do If Your T-Mobile Account Was Hacked
If your T-Mobile account is hacked, you can take the following steps to ensure the safety of your money:
● Change passwords and PINs
If you suspect that your T-mobile account has been hacked, your initial instinct should be to quickly change your account passwords and PINs to prevent further access to your accounts. This is how you can change your PIN and protect your account:
- Log into your T-mobile account
- Go to MY T-MOBILE menu
- Select My Profile, then click on Profile Information
- Scroll down till you get to Change PIN and choose Edit
- Come up with a new and secure PIN and enter it twice
- Select Save
● Freeze your finances
Freezing your credit and bank accounts prevents the perpetrators from accessing your financial records, making purchases, opening new credit lines, etc. Here's how to freeze your credit:
- Contact Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion, the three major credit card bureaus
- Give out the required information to confirm that the account you intend to freeze is yours.
- Confirm with them that you want to freeze your credit. This process is entirely free and will not affect your credit score in any way.
● Two-factor authentication
It is highly recommended to consider enabling the two-factor authentication security on your accounts to increase your security.
- Download authenticator apps on your phone. These include Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, Authy, etc.
- Go to your phone Settings
- Select Security and Passwords
- Turn on Two-Factor Authentication
How To Tell If Your T-Mobile Account Was Hacked
It is a scary situation for anyone to be a victim of an account hack. Here are some tell-tale signs that your account has been hacked:
- Suspicious account activity that you did not take part in
- Account logging from a different device
- Strange viewing activity
T-mobile should also contact you directly through push notifications if your account has been hacked. If you are yet to be contacted but want to confirm if your T-mobile account was hacked, you can call their customer service on 611.
You can also take advantage of identity protection services online like McAfee, which inform you of any fraudulent activity on your account.
What to Do If Your T-Mobile Account Username/Password Has Been Changed
You should immediately contact T-mobile support and file an official complaint with the details of your situation. It would also be a wise choice to contact your bank and cancel and prevent any payments and transactions. You can recover your password through your backup email or text if you activate your two-factor authentication.
