#StackBounty: #authentication #phone What is the best protocol for an organisation to make phone calls to clients, where the client is …

Bounty: 100

I’ve experienced a couple of times, an organisation has called me, but they require me verify who I am with security questions.

Most recently, this was my credit card company who left a voice message with a number to call re: possible fraud on my account.

The obvious security risk here, is that it could be a scammer, who is then going to use those details gain access to my account.

In these scenarios, having a modicum of security conscientiousness, what I do is acknowledge the call, request a ticket number if there is one, and look their phone number up on the website, and call back that way.

In my credit card example – the number they’d given me wasn’t listed, so I called their general helpline and requested to be transferred.

I think from a end user/consumer’s point of view, this is the right protocol.

The question is – what should the organisations themselves be doing to encourage good security? It seems like a very bad habit to teach their customers – to reveal identifying information to people who call them.

Bounty: 50

TV Everywhere is cable and satellite providers’ answer to the practice of cord-cutting, i.e. using Internet streaming services as a substitute for subscribing to cable or satellite services. TV Everywhere refers to websites or apps that allow you to stream cable TV shows and movies, but require you to log in to your cable or satellite provider before doing so.

My question is, are there any TV Everywhere apps for the Samsung Gear VR headset? The reason I ask is that I do a lot of my TV watching in virtual reality nowadays, and I’d like to watch two cable shows, the Twin Peaks revival on Showtime and Season 3 of 12 Monkeys on Syfy, using my Samsung Gear Gear VR headset. So are there any apps that allow for streaming full episodes of Showtime and Syfy episodes through Gear VR?
