Porting Security

Just Moved In
I keep reading about number porting scams (https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/saskatoon/family-farm-port-out-scam-1.5443580). Telus should add “disable porting” as an option in the ‘My Telus’ app. If toggled ‘on’ the port request would simply be ignored.
Status: New Idea

I contacted Telus and had them put a note in my account indicating that they need to call me on another number to confirm any number Port or SIM swap request. Unfortunately there's no way of knowing whether they will actually do this until a request is made.
