Check if your device is compatible

An eSim or embedded SIM is a SIM card that is built into the smartphone and offers exactly the same functionnalities as a physical SIM card. With an eSIM, there's no physical SIM card that you need to insert, and you can quickly activate it.

Embedded SIM (eSIM) technology offers a significant security advantage over traditional SIM cards, thanks to its integrated nature. Since eSIMs are not physically removable, criminals cannot easily obtain or manipulate them. As a result, eSIMs significantly reduce the risk of SIM swapping or port out fraud. With an eSIM, your personal data remains securely tied to your device, ensuring robust protection against unauthorized access and offering you peace of mind.

Your eSIM is protected by the same robust security standards for your personal data as traditional SIM cards. Both technologies employ robust encryption and authentication protocols, ensuring your sensitive information remains protected. Like physical SIM cards, eSIMs offer you the same possibility to set, change or disable your PIN code, ensuring you have control over secure network access. At Proximus, we prioritize your privacy and security, consistently implementing advanced cybersecurity measures to protect your personal data and prevent unauthorized access, no matter which SIM technology you choose.
