Support/FAQs / What is a porting PIN?

Traditionally, mobile carriers require either your date of birth (for prepaid plans) or your account number in order to port your number. This means if a hacker has accessed your mobile number and/or date of birth or account number (e.g. from your bill), they can port your phone number away. Cmobile has introduced a 6-digit porting PIN so that your number can only be ported by providing this PIN. Cmobile will store your PIN on your account and it will not be visible to anyone other than Cmobile staff. This means if a hacker gains access to your mobile number and date of birth or account number, they will not be able to port your number away without your PIN.
