Warning: Gaping Schwab security hole!

Agree that is a big oversight. FWIW, I have the voice ID set up but I also have a phone password set up with Schwab. So even when I pass the voice verification, they still ask for my verbal password. One more layer of security.

The OP is strongly concerned that information posted in this thread may have exposed personally identifiable information. For this reason, the OP's post content and all replies have been removed.

Since this discussion has been forwarded to Schwab, one reply and this post have been left visible.

In summary, Schwab's telephone authentication of a Social Security number incorrectly identified a client.
