While you can be exempt from being spied by apps, simply not installing them and keeping your system clean, it is difficult being tracked down by this GSM exploit, as it happens automatically, without user interaction, whatever the system  software is.
So bigger threat: caused by just having a mobile in your hand.

In my opinion, it has always been well known that a mobile phone and the Internet are all that cybercriminals need to know absolutely everything about us. Almost none of our precautions will lead to anything if we just turn on our mobile phone and even connect to the Internet. This is enough to see us, to hear, to observe us, to know exactly our location with an accuracy of a meter. The relevant intelligence agencies have long been using these opportunities to observe individual citizens, bypassing the legal procedure of wiretapping and surveillance.
Civilization provides us with various benefits, but we always pay for them with our freedom.

Cyber-criminals use this venue to keep tracking individuals that they wanted to penetrate there's no escape once you have been targeted, there's always a perfect way for them to stay close, with this ideas the best thing to do is to act accordingly, we need to have right knowledge in order to do some prosecution matters to avoid and lessen the risk of being penetrated. with good knowledge chances to protect yourself can be done.

Our privacy has been at risk for a long time. We need to be very careful about keeping our private information, passwords etc. . If we do not keep our data in a secure place, then the risk is getting bigger.

All returned to the user. We must be careful and not arbitrarily spread our SIM or email numbers on the internet. It would be better if you give it to someone you can trust. Because there could be hackers who take advantage of loopholes after knowing your SIM card number. Always use layered security on Exchanger accounts or private wallets such as 2fa or email verification.

Don't keep coins on exchanges, don't keep coins on phones and make sure your 2fa isn't sms based. It's an easy way to not take a apart in these. That and don't give your phone number out to everyone, they have to know who to target as well.

Possibly run a second burner phone with just sms and Google auth and other 2fa, nothing else.
Don't keep coins on exchanges is acceptable but don't keep coins on phone? i don't see any reason why because i think its safe on my own side, i have been keeping my coins on phone since 2016 and i have no issue till date, secondly my phone has inbuilt fingerprint and face recognition for anyone to access

its not acceptable to me because i often used exchanges for trading so putting my coins on them can be convinient  but if you are scared then better if you withdrew your coins away from exchanges  and only deposit on them if you will use it imediately  .  you said your phone is open to anyone but why did you do that ? i think that is more risky because anyone that opens your phone can be a suspect if ever you lost your coins on your phone  . you shouldnt store coins on it or you should not open your password to anyone else  .

I use a burner phones for all my Crypto related stuff, so I can see where attacks are coming from. The Sim swap thing is not something new and in my country we have syndicates that are working with employees that are working for the telecommunication companies to enable them to do these Sim swaps. <The companies normally deny any involvement when their employees are compromised, so very little happens when you are a victim of these syndicates.>

Also remember that these Sim swaps are targeted at online Banking services too, so it is not just Bitcoin related services that are targeted by this.  Angry Angry Angry

He probably only said that because it's easier to lose coins in your phone than in your PC, but if you know what you're doing, phones should be perfectly viable for storage. This attack, for one, is practically limited to tracking victims, so there shouldn't be any risk of crypto loss. Just make sure you don't keep large amounts anywhere that's not cold storage.

Google auth is lame authenticator app (but unfortunately, widely known, just cause, Google brand), if someone gets their hands on your phone, the codes are available naked, better use authenticator apps that takes measures to protect it.
