I own a Galaxy S9 and I added my first Contact phone number and it asked me if I wanted to store this information on the Phone or on the SIM card?

My internal Phone storage is encrypted with the Galaxy S9's encryption feature called Secure Startup along with a boot up password.

My SIM has also a 4 digit PIN code as well.

So which is more secure to store my Contacts? Phone or directly to the SIM?

Thanks

Not sure which is more secure, but on the SIM here is the downside....if the SIM gets damaged, you can lose your contacts.
