USSD Call Forwarding Service: Government took a big decision in the interest of crores of mobile users, stopped call forwarding service – Bollywood Keeda

USSD Call Forwarding Service: The Department of Telecommunications has asked all the telecom companies of the country to stop the facility of forwarding calls through USSD code. The government has taken this decision to stop fraud through online and fake calls.

After this order, the facility of forwarding calls by dialing *401# in mobile phones will end from April 15. USSD i.e. Unstructured Supplementary Service Data – is a short code.

With the help of this feature, services are activated and deactivated on a number by dialing a code. Generally mobile users dial it to check phone balance, set caller tune, run UPI and know IMEI number.

How does USSD call forwarding service work?

If a mobile user ‘A’ calls an unknown number ‘B’ by dialing *401#, all calls or messages received on user A’s mobile will be forwarded to user ‘B’s phone. This means that now the access to calls and messages of user ‘A’ is in the hands of user ‘B’. Scammers use this method.

In this, scammers call your number pretending to be a telecom provider and ask you to dial *401# citing network and any other problem. As soon as you dial this number, it will ask you to call an unknown number. As soon as you dial this, every phone message or OTP coming to your number will be forwarded to the unknown number which you have dialed after *401#.
