Rogers introduces additional protections for customers against unauthorised porting

Thursday 6 August 2020 | 09:43 CET | News
Rogers introduced additional protective measures to guard Rogers, Fido and chatr customers against port fraud. The company said its new process, developed with other wireless providers, is designed to stop fraudsters in their tracks. Now, when another carrier is contacted to transfer a Rogers, Fido or chatr phone number to them, Rogers will receive a notice from the new carrier and will send the account holder a text message with a unique, secure link.
