The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) is issuing a critical alert to mobile users, emphasizing the importance of safeguarding their 5G SIM upgrade process.
No OTP Required for 5G Activation
TRAI emphasizes that telecom companies will never request an OTP (One-Time Password) during the activation of 5G services.
If you are prompted to provide OTP during your SIM upgrade for 5G, please refrain from doing so.
TRAI explicitly states that there’s no need to share personal information during the SIM upgrade.
Beware of Suspicious Links
Exercise caution when it comes to clicking on any links related to 5G service upgrades.
TRAI warns that clicking on such links could lead to your information being sent to unauthorized parties.
Be Wary of Offers
If you receive offers related to 5G services, exercise caution. These offers could potentially be fraudulent attempts to deceive mobile users.
To better comprehend OTP (One-Time Password), it’s a unique code generated during certain financial transactions for user privacy and security.
This code consists of six digits and is sent to your registered mobile number.
It’s a time-sensitive code, valid for only a short duration. Hackers may attempt to acquire such OTPs from smartphone users to gain access to banking information.
Stay vigilant and avoid sharing OTPs unless you are certain of the legitimacy of the request.
