  1. How long have you been a tech writer Matt? Where were you when TMobile initiated the ability to put a pin on your account? Sprint was the first I believe to do this.

    Also, if someone has taken over your Google account, then the authenticator app might be useless. And perhaps even needs to be on the phone with control of the phone number, and the Google account.

    Also, you need to establish a online social security account, which most people don’t even know about. The authentication process is pretty tough. They will ask questions like what car you owned in 1995, when did you first get a xxx card, what year were you in 3rd grade, and the teachers name was? It took me about an hour and then they mail you a letter to confirm the account creation. It was a bit disconcerting to tell the truth.
