i’ve signed up trough an unaffiliated app, not knowing what was behind it. by default anyone i match with has an name which consists of the first part of their email.
now the issue is. i just have to add one of the two main email providers, @gmail and @outlook, maybe add hotmail if i’m feeling fancy, and i can spam & scam away. most people don’t bother to change their name.
i’ve never been hacked personally but everytime i get issues with passwords or emails being leaked it is trough things like this, my first leaked credentials where trough towns of salem. many others followed. so yes this is a risk.
i really like this service tho, appreciate it. i’m terrible at go but i’m learning.
