port validation

Level 2

with ever increading SIM swap attacks (someone convinces your carrier to switch your phone number over to a SIM card they own) just wondering the level of protection which TPG can offer for their customers? can we enforce an extra validation for porting requests?


Hi @gayanms,


Welcome to TPG Community!


The process of porting a mobile number from one carrier to another is covered by the MNP code which was introduced many years ago by the ACMA(Australian Communications and Media Authority). TPG as a carrier is covered by this code.


The Mobile Number Portability industry Code (MNP Code) sets out the procedural arrangements required to port a mobile number between providers. The code specifies the general rules including timeframes for portability (performance levels) and the porting processes including the requirements for customer authorisations.
