Phone Cloning and Digital Self Defense

1/18/2018

Man Cloning Phone

Did you know it’s possible to clone a phone? It involves copying the identity of one phone to another. In fact, in today’s digital world, when we use them for everything from ordering an Uber to paying for purchases, mobile phones can be a major source of security breaches. And as frightening as it sounds, the only thing a hacker needs to launch a major attack is your phone number.


Why clone a phone?
Hackers clone phones so they can use them, or sell them to people who use them, to make calls and access the phone’s data. When a phone is cloned, the calls made by the hackers are billed to your account. But that’s just the beginning.


Phones often contain enormous amounts of personal information. So, once the hacker has access to the phone, they can cause devastating financial damage.
The hacker can listen to you from their own phone and watch you through your camera. They can read your messages, access your passwords and view your contacts.
Cloned phones are also convenient for criminals, particularly in drug-related crime, because they are more difficult to trace. If your phone is used this way, it may appear to authorities as if you are engaged in criminal activity.
There are a number of ways to clone a phone. The easiest way is using specialized software that’s readily available online. Another way is to program a new phone to transfer the serial settings and phone number from a legitimate one.


How can you tell if your phone’s been cloned?
You may not know your phone has been cloned until you notice unusual financial activity. However, you may detect hints that the phone has been cloned, such as lots of wrong-number calls, difficulty making outgoing calls or retrieving messages and unfamiliar numbers on your phone bill.


Here are some proactive and reactive steps you can take against phone-cloning:

  • Review your phone bill for unfamiliar numbers and charges. If something looks suspicious, have your provider check for viruses that may have resulted from cloning.
  • Input your phone number into a search engine to see if any links include your number.
  • Use another phone to call your number and see if someone picks up.
  • Contact your financial institution to verify whether anyone has tried to open credit cards or loans in your name.
  • Make sure your phone is password-protected. Create different passwords and PINs for all the accounts that are accessible using your phone.
  • If you suspect cloning, you may have to restore your phone to its factory settings.
  • If you determine your phone was cloned, contact your phone provider and the FBI immediately. You can use the FBI website and select “Tips and Public Leads in the Reporting Crime” section. It is important that you do this, so the authorities can follow up on the information you provide.

Your Turn: Has your phone been cloned? How did you find out about it? Did you suffer financial loss? Share your experience and any tips on how to prevent security breaches with us.

3/1/2021 12:01 PM Kelly Jane Z. from Round Rock, TX
I was devasted with so much pressure from my friends telling me how my boyfriend is not been faithful and it was also hard for me to confront him about it cause any time I always want to talk to him he always put on a strange look and I have no option but to hire wizardharry@prgrammer.net to help me clone his iPhone12 pro so I could have access. I was happy to hire wizard Harry, I saw the truth and the secret he has been keeping all this while. please I advise everyone to hire Wizard Harry regarding cases like mine.

Bitcoin Investment

My Bitcoin Investment  Experience. 
No doubt Bitcoin has been the trend of today and it's doing a lot in the world of business because people prefer saving  up money in their wallets rather than banks,   I lost about  $54,000 USD last summer due to the fall in the price of bitcoins. A colleague at work who knew my ordeal on bitcoin savings  introduced me to a platform  (cryptoforex345.com)  where I can save and invest my bitcoins with more than 100%  profit  margin.  At first I was skeptical about it so I decided to try it out with just a few dollars. I was amazed after 12 hours I earned more than 50% additional dollars  and I was able to make an instant withdrawal and ever since I have been investing and making more money.  Bitcoin investment with cryptoforex345.com  has changed my life as I have made over $176,000 USD. You can sign up and earn at:          
https://cryptoforex345.com   or  contact  info@cryptoforex345.com for more details.
Note: NO REGISTRATION FEE, NO UPFRONT PAYMENT.Enjoy endless possibilities.
