    It's easy to hijack and get control of phone number. That's why I have a private number for 2FA :)
    Everyone should do this! Do not set 2FA with your contact number!

    This isn't new, people have been social engineering phone companies and hacking phone recovery passwords for a few years now.

    Simple way to solve it, don't use phone verification. Also upgrade your security with your phone company.

    All the hackers need with a limited security number is information you can usually find online. Such as DOB and address.
