How does Mint prevent number port / sim swap fraud other than name / number / email address?

Is it possible to add a PIN or other validation step to truly prevent this?

Your PIN number is usually the last 4 digits of your phone number. When you call for your account information they will ask for your full name and phone number. I don’t think there is a way to switch out your pin sadly.
