Globe Calls on Customers to Register Their SIMs for Protection vs. Scams, Crime
The government has extended the registration deadline from April 26, 2023 to July 25, 2023.
Globe has renewed its call on customers to register their SIMs and avoid waiting for the last minute to register after the government extended the deadline to comply with the SIM Registration Act by 90 days.
SIM registration is an important step towards protecting one’s account and information. A registered SIM can be blocked in case of loss or theft. It also blocks customers from spam and scam texts. Through SIM registration, criminals won't be able to easily access personal information in apps and accounts.
Registered customers will also get to continue enjoying mobile services and apps for financial transactions and booking deliveries and ride-hailing services, among others. They will also get timely messages from government agencies, including emergency alerts.
“We would like to again call on our customers to please schedule their registration early. Please take advantage of the extension to complete your registration and comply with the law,” said Darius Delgado, Head of Globe’s Consumer Mobile Business.
“We urge you to please do this early and not wait for the new deadline so that you can get yourselves protected. We have made registration fast and easy, and we provide on-site support for those who need help,” he said.
The government has extended the registration deadline from April 26, 2023 to July 25, 2023. As of May 7, a total of 43.65 million have registered out of the total base of 84.2 million.
For Globe Prepaid, TM, and Globe At Home Prepaid WiFi users, use the GlobeOne app or go to new.globe.com.ph/simreg to register.
Globe Prepaid and TM users who have a fully-verified GCash account may also register via the GCash app in just a few clicks! They just need to follow instructions after they receive a prompt to register their SIMs, and they will get 1 GB of free data.
Postpaid and Platinum subscribers are already included in the SIM registration database.
Globe’s 144 Stores and 27 EasyHubs across the country are also open to help customers who need help. The company has also rolled out over 1,000 SIM registration assistance booths since registration started.
