“Uh? I didn’t register to this site…”
It all started with a single email, many years ago. Someone create their new account on a website… using my email. These systems being badly designed, they didn’t care to check for authorization. They just started sending emails, newsletter and advertisement.
Notably, since the email is “the” thing that allows access, it also meant I had full access to whatever these people were doing. Over the years I could have accessed a multitude of things: mobile phone ids, dating profiles, furniture store shopping, language learning platforms, even anti-virus licenses and full hard drive remote backups.
I created this site to have a public record of all these companies that have poor registration and verification systems for emails, and to review how long it takes for them to fix the reported issue.
These systems should be fixed.
