Why are mobile alerts so important?
Mobile phone fraud is on the rise for both private and business customers. SIM-swap scams, where fraudsters manage to convince your phone provider to transfer your mobile number to another SIM, costs the victim an average of £4000. So, with such large amounts of money at stake, it’s more important than ever to ensure you have the right protection in place to safeguard your business against such attacks.
What's more, in the busy business world, it’s easy to lose track of how many minutes you’re on the phone for or how often you’ve browsed the internet using your data instead of wi-fi. An alert system will keep track of all these details for you, giving you peace of mind that you won’t accidently accumulate huge usage charges.
Our business mobile fraud and cost alerts
As part of our standard service here at Town & Country, we equip all our business mobile phones with an effective fraud and cost prevention system. The system is continually monitored to detect any unusual activity, such as racking up steep internet charges and signs of fraud, and alerting you as quickly as possible.
You have complete control and flexibility over how you want your business mobile to be governed and our alert system is able to detect and warn you of the following:
- Using your phone in a country with expensive tariffs
- Going over your minutes and text allowance
- Calls to international numbers from the UK
- When you reach 50%, 80% and/or 100% of your data allowance
