Switch your SIM

Rather than carrying your SIM (and the data it contains), consider buying a temporary SIM once you arrive at your destination.

They’re perfect for traveling executives, won’t give an attacker any worthwhile data if they’re stolen or confiscated, and can be disposed of when you leave.
