Fuck me..... Wtf is wrong with these companies obsessing over people's phone numbers....
Discord, I understand cos they're data hoovering dickheads.
But from a supposedly "privacy oriented" company like Apple, this is stupid af......

@sh.c:matrix.orgacetone1627And also discovered that I can't even generate a recovery code for my Apple ID 2FA unless I have an Apple device. So if I lose my phone or number, I probably can't even log into my account anymore.00:49:36
@sh.c:matrix.orgacetone1627God, this is idiotic on so many levels.....00:49:48

@sh.c:matrix.orgacetone1627Christ, that is rich, honestly.00:51:15
@anon7642594:matrix.orgAnonyeah apple is a big no no to simplelogin and anonaddy00:52:19
@sh.c:matrix.orgacetone1627Cos I signed into a service using the "Sign in with Apple" option. But then I couldn't reset my password for that account cos Apple's "Hide my email" thing is simply broken, and I can't get the password reset email to my real email address associated with my Apple ID.00:52:49
@sh.c:matrix.orgacetone1627They let people walk into a trap that is their broken service, yet block email privacy services that actually work.00:54:12

I recommend setting up a jellyfin server, and buy DRM-Free Flac music, its more expensive short term but cheaper long term
00:56:58
@sh.c:matrix.orgacetone1627Why even offer their services to non-Apple device users if you're not even gonna support them properly with something as basic as generating recovery codes.00:57:16

Yeah, I've been toying with Jellyfin for the past few weeks, and honestly might just switch over.
