Trusted contacts



Access Trusted contacts

To access Trusted contacts in ESET Mobile Security, you need to install the ESET SMS Tool application. For more information, visit the ESET SMS tool documentation or our Knowledgebase article.  

In the Trusted contacts section, add or remove the phone numbers of your friends and family members that will be able to:

Receive an alert SMS after detecting an unauthorized SIM card in your device

Reset your Security password (provided the Allow remote Security password reset option is enabled for this contact)


To add a new Trusted friend, tap icon_plus and enter the friend's name and mobile number or tap face_phone_contacts to select a contact from your phone's Contact list. To remove a Trusted friend, select the entry and tap action_button_delete.

If a Trusted friend entry contains more than one phone number, the alert SMS and password reset will work with all associated numbers.


Call services when being abroad

If you are abroad, enter all phone numbers into the list with the international dialing code followed by the actual number (e.g., +1610100100).
