Developers, consider not sharing the name of your app in your SMS 2FA text messages. This may allow people / aggregators (govt. or other) in the middle to glean information about your users.

Instead, consider displaying a unique string in the app itself, then share that via the text message to pair in addition to the TOTP code.

This may help whistleblowers & everyday people to avoid divulging additional attack surfaces.

CAUTION: Contains untested beta software! Do not use as your main work environment!

Facebook is a uniquely horrible creature.

Birthed as Ivy League frat house wet dream.

Coddled on narcissist need to always exist (be seen/be heard).

Juiced on the frictions of rubbing together ever available ideology divides until they bleed.

All the while gorging on copious amounts of free content and data until it enveloped the world.

There is no better version of this.

Only better places to spend our time and energy.

Where hopefully we can become better people.
