If you are a State Bank of India (SBI) customer, be careful about your net banking. In fact, SBI has sent messages to its customers, cautioning that if you have not updated your net banking password in the last 180 days (six months), update it at the earliest. The bank has asked its customers to update their account information by visiting SBI's online portal. According to the bank, in the recent past, fraudsters are sending messages to SBI customers on mobile. The link sent in that message looks like the SBI net banking page. Customers are asked to click on that link by sending messages. If you click on that link, all your confidential information reaches the counterfeiters, and in this way, they can make a dent in your account.
The bank has said that if you have such a message, you should immediately ignore it and delete the message from your mobile immediately. According to the bank, if you have such a message, you can also tell other SBI customers about it. Technology has made our work easier, but there are some dangers. Sometimes the fraudster gives a swindler through SIM cloning of SIM swapping. In fact, the fraud person prepares a duplicate of your SIM, the SIM swap means that the SIM changes. Then the forgery is able to register a new SIM from your phone number. Then your SIM closes. Anyone can make a dent in your account through OTP that comes to the second number registered to your number after the SIM is closed.
To avoid this, if the network on your SIM is not good, or if there are no calls on your phone or there is no alert, immediately complain to your mobile operators. You have to be alert to avoid methods like SIM cloning.
