The most commonly used computer platform nowadays is no longer a desktop or a laptop — it’s a phone. According to Bank My Cell, as of August 2019, there are more than 5 billion mobile devices worldwide. A staggering 67 percent of the population has some kind of mobile device, and research suggests the average person spends five hours a day on their phone — about a third of the time the average person is awake. It’s no wonder attackers are targeting the mobile phone market.
Concern is growing about subscriber identification module (SIM) swapping and SIM cloning attacks.
