At plan.com, safeguarding your privacy and ensuring your security is our utmost priority. This extensive guide will provide you a holistic understanding of the various security aspects associated with your account and device when you sign up with plan.com.
Understanding Third-Party Access
Third-party access allows your Account Manager to view and access specific features on your plan.com account. To find out more about Account Managers please see our guide to Partners.
Partners without third-party access cannot view sensitive account-related information.
They only have access to information related to calls, messages, and data usage necessary for account administration.
Account Security Measures & Password Reset
We are committed to protecting your personal data and implement strict security measures. We have systems in place to monitor for suspicious activities, and we use encryption to secure your data.
In case you forget your account password, don't worry, you can reset it. Follow the prompts and instructions for password reset offered via my.plan.
The Significance of Security Questions
To ensure your account stays protected, we may ask security questions when you contact us. These questions are designed to verify your identity and prevent unauthorised access to your account information.
Dealing with SIM-related Concerns
When you receive your plan.com SIM card, the default PIN code is 0000. In case you enter the wrong SIM PIN three times consecutively, your SIM card gets automatically locked as a security measure.
If you ever find yourself in such a situation, there’s no need to worry. You can unlock the SIM with the PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) code that came with your SIM card. If you can't locate your PUK code, please contact our support team at firstname.lastname@example.org who'll be happy to assist.
Understanding the Role of the IMEI Number
Every mobile device has a unique IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number that’s used to identify it. It's important to know your device's IMEI number as it can be used to block your device by the service provider if it ever gets stolen or lost.
You can find the IMEI number usually on the device's box or by dialing *#06# on your device. However, someone knowing your IMEI number does not pose a significant threat to your digital security or privacy. They cannot control your phone, see your texts, listen to your calls, or infiltrate your phone only by knowing your IMEI number.
Cyber Security Measures
Given the increase in digital attacks, you may be concerned about the possibility of your phone being hacked. Rest assured, the chances of this happening are incredibly slim. It requires high-level technical expertise and direct control of your device.
At plan.com, we always recommend keeping your device’s software up-to-date and refraining from sharing sensitive information online to further secure your device.
Remember, if you ever come across any security concerns, our customer support team is always on standby to assist. The safety and peace of mind of our valued customers are what matters to us the most. Therefore, we strive to continually update and enforce our security measures.
