I use an iPhone. Today I got a text from an unknown number starting from +65. The message was "your one-time Wifi password is xxxx and it’s valid for only 10 minutes". Thought it was a scam and deleted the text.
After an hour or so, my Wifi on my phone got disconnected followed by a pop up saying that password for Wifi is incorrect and asking for the password. I ignored it and immediately turned off Wifi on my phone. Then I used my laptop to login to my modem and changed the Wifi password, and then the phone got connected to Wifi again using the new password.
I’ve been checking my bank accounts and no suspicious activity so far (I’ve enabled Touch ID for banking apps) but I’m just thinking how my phone was disconnected from the Wifi and asking for the new password, when clearly the Wifi password hadn’t been changed (my laptop was able to connect to Wifi with the old password).
Did someone actually hack into my phone and changed the Wifi password and expected me to enter the password sent in the text?
Any advice would be appreciated as I’m concerned about my bank accounts now.
