Glad youโ€™re back. Sorry you got sim swapped :-( Are T-Mobile going to add some extra protection to your mobile to prevent this going forward? I am anxious that mobile companies are woefully unprepared to curtail social engineeringโ€ฆespecially if AI can simulate a speaker since many telecoms use voice for auth

X sucks. Long live farcaster. Also for web2 stuff in the interim, reminder for everyone else here to get some hardware security keys (Yubico). Phone 2FA is clearly too vulnerable.
