CLAIMS

What is claimed is:

1. A non-transitory computer readable medium storing computer code executable by a processor to perform a method for protecting against unintentional deletion of an eSIM from a mobile device, the method comprising:

detecting deletion of an eSIM from a mobile device;

accessing definitions of predefined scenarios indicative of unintentional deletions of eSIMs;

analyzing the detected deletion, using the definitions, to determine that the detected deletion is unintentional; and

causing a proactive care action to be performed to address the unintentional deletion of the eSIM from the mobile device.

2. The non-transitory computer readable medium of claim 1 , wherein the method is performed by the mobile device.

3. The non-transitory computer readable medium of claim 1, wherein the method is performed by a platform running separately from the mobile device.

4. The non-transitory computer readable medium of claim 1, wherein the eSIM is installed as computer code on the mobile device.

5. The non-transitory computer readable medium of claim 4, wherein the computer code is a software application installed on the mobile device.

6. The non-transitory computer readable medium of claim 1, wherein the eSIM securely stores identity and authentication information for at least one subscriber to a provider network.

7. The non-transitory computer readable medium of claim 1, wherein detecting the deletion of the eSIM from the mobile device includes detecting a command to delete the eSIM from the mobile device.

8. The non-transitory computer readable medium of claim 1, wherein detecting the deletion of the eSIM from the mobile device includes detecting an event indicating a removal of the eSIM from the mobile device.

9. The non-transitory computer readable medium of claim 1, wherein detecting the deletion of the eSIM from the mobile device includes identifying information describing the deletion of the eSIM from the mobile device.

10. The non-transitory computer readable medium of claim 9, wherein the information describing the deletion of the eSIM from the mobile device includes at least one of: a time of the deletion, a user that caused the deletion, events occurring on the mobile device leading up to the deletion, a location of the mobile device at a time of the deletion, or a fee paid for the eSIM.

11. The non-transitory computer readable medium of claim 9, wherein analyzing the detected deletion, using the definitions, to determine that the detected deletion is unintentional includes determining that the information describing the deletion of the eSIM from the mobile device correlates with one or more of the definitions.

12. The non-transitory computer readable medium of claim 1, wherein the definitions are stored locally.

13. The non-transitory computer readable medium of claim 1, wherein detecting the deletion of the eSIM from the mobile device includes identifying registration information for the eSIM.

14. The non-transitory computer readable medium of claim 13, wherein the registration information includes at least one of: a time of an activation of the eSIM on the mobile device, a subscription plan for each account associated with the eSIM, or a location of the mobile device during the activation of the eSIM on the mobile device.

15. The non-transitory computer readable medium of claim 14, wherein the analyzing is further of the registration information.

16. The non-transitory computer readable medium of claim 1, wherein when the detecting the deletion of the eSIM from the mobile device includes detecting a command to delete the eSIM from the mobile device, then the proactive care action includes at least temporarily preventing deletion of eSIM from the mobile device.

17. The non-transitory computer readable medium of claim 1, wherein when the detecting the deletion of the eSIM from the mobile device includes detecting an event indicating a removal of the eSIM from the mobile device, then the proactive care action includes downloading a copy of the eSIM to the mobile device.

18. The non-transitory computer readable medium of claim 17, wherein the copy of the eSIM is downloaded to the mobile device automatically without user intervention.

19. A method for protecting against unintentional deletion of an eSIM from a mobile device, comprising:

detecting, by a system, deletion of an eSIM from a mobile device; accessing, by the system, definitions of predefined scenarios indicative of unintentional deletions of eSIMs;

analyzing, by the system, the detected deletion, using the definitions, to determine that the detected deletion is unintentional; and

causing, by the system, a proactive care action to be performed to address the unintentional deletion of the eSIM from the mobile device.

20. A system, comprising:

a non-transitory memory storing instructions; and

one or more processors in communication with the non-transitory memory that execute the instructions to perform a method for protecting against unintentional deletion of an eSIM from a mobile device, the method comprising:

detecting deletion of an eSIM from a mobile device;

accessing definitions of predefined scenarios indicative of unintentional deletions of eSIMs;

analyzing the detected deletion, using the definitions, to determine that the detected deletion is unintentional; and

causing a proactive care action to be performed to address the unintentional deletion of the eSIM from the mobile device.
