THE stupidity of companies to ask (force!!!) for a 2FA authentication… BUT in the mood actually, WHY???!!!

WE are in 2020: It is well known THAT a 2FA authentication ISN’T anymore secure, proven by Cyber-Security experts and EVEN the FBI reported and sent out awareness posts!!!

SO, first of all let us find out about WHAT a 2FA is to make sure THAT WE understand WHAT WE are talking about, please check below for more information:

WHAT is happening NOW (January 2020)?!!! Companies like Twitter and Google (Gmail) are forcing people (users) to give THEM their smartphone number (telephone number) to create a new account and/or in case of any trouble with an account to ONLY get unlocked the account by giving THEM the telephone number, like Twitter does actually!!! WTF is THIS for an unethical behavior to force people (users) to GET THEIR phone numbers for WHAT EVER reason?!!! Check some screenshots below please…

.

.

THUS meaning: I can’t GET a Google Gmail account WITHOUT giving THEM my phone number, WTF is THAT???!!! THEY have already collected ALL my information, my behavior etc. and NOW THEY want ALSO to have my phone number under the guise of security, seriously???!!!

And WHAT’s about Twitter (as mentioned above)? THEY try out a new trick; one gets a message from THEM that one is detected as a robot behavior and considered as a Spam producer??!!! Really??? Well, this happens to me since 02 January 2020 ( a #HappyNewYear message…)!

Looks like Twitter’s algorithm ISN’T working well, as I didn’t break any rules! It is ONLY the 3d time that THIS is happening to me, BUT this time (08-01-2020) I didn’t get a return (reply) message from them after 6 days!!! Strange, looks like THEY will force me to unlock my Twitter account for the solely reason of getting my phone number, as I asked THEM to unlock my account manually, which didn’t happen till NOW!!!? THEY DON’T get my phone number, NO WAY!!!

OK, enough complained now: Let us have a look WHY I created THIS blog post to show YOU the stupidity of a 2FA authentication, check below please:

My last Twitter posts for information before I got locked my account by Twitter:

SO, dear readers, followers, friends: NOW you know for which reason you didn’t see ANY activity from me…

A stupid Twitter algorithm with a bad following HELP line(???)…

Will get updated IF something NEW…
