itoddlers would never accept this Posted on May 20, 2023 by Anonymous this popup is fucking omnipresent now. apple would never have chosen to do this. gargle truly hates you.
serves you right for using reddit
also just remove it with your adblocker
I hate the modern web, it's just cancer mixed with vomit
>you MUST sign in with an apple id to download apps
>you MUST attach your credit card to your apple id to download apps
>oh you want to change apple id password? wait the mandatory 13 days for the reset link
say what u want nagger im not even an itoddler. just saying apple would never decide to spam this popup all across the web to incite mass frustration. you know this is the work of some senseless jeet shitting up the web without giving a fuck about ux.
>try to sign-up for *insert anything here*
>phone number required
How did it get this bad.
at least Mutts can just buy a phone anywhere
In fascist EU you need a fucking ID to buy a sim c ard
It's even worse when you get a new number and that number has already been used, and they won't let you use the same number to make a different account.

Governments became afraid of people spreading messages outside of their control, so they needed a way to clamp down on anonymous social media.
They used various excuses like stopping misinformation, or hate speech, or think of the children, but ultimately the goal was to make sure that every interaction with every site would require the user to reveal their government identity.

this, and also the social media homosexuals wanted people to be completely unable to make anonymous, sock or alt accounts. they got their way
we're lucky, we (internet hipsters) can still host things without having to show ID, penis pics and $10,000. tor hidden services exist. direct IP connection still works. domain registrars don't have KYC requirements. we've still got time
I admire your positivity, but I'm not sure what you're expecting to happen in the 5 or so years we have left until non-KYC websites start getting blocked.
Direct IP connection and Tor will probably go first, as governments start making ISPs and app stores block those.
Maybe if a critical mass of people move to sites that use distributed architectures like the Fediverse, then it will at least be politically difficult in some countries for governments to ban them, just like most democracies haven't banned E2EE messaging apps yet.
>domain registrars don't have KYC requirements
I'm pretty sure u can lost your domain if you don't use real info in its whois
also fuck icann
Apple puts you into a walled garden pushing you to services they can tax, Google sells you to advertisers.
Obviously Google is going to be more aggressive in getting your data, on the on the upside it doesn't cost you any money.
Stop using Chrome and giving yourself a heart attack.
I'm using Firefox and I still get these popups.
I didn't know there were Firefox users who didn't use ublock origin.
itoddlers literally support not having sideloading. When flappy bird wad taken down from app store iphones that still had it installed sold for thousands of dollars. itoddlers are the lowest life form on Earth.
I can understand why people would want to do this but ideally this should be done with gpg keys
>ideally this should be done with gpg keys
That would be cool, but using a single identity to log in to multiple sites means that those sites can collude to track you across the web.
The ideal would actually be something where you could use Zero Knowledge Proofs to generate a separate identity for each site, derived from your core identity, which is never directly revealed.
Unfortunately, though, most sites would refuse to implement such a system, because they don't want attackers being able to generate an infinite number of free identities.
Making each identity require a unique SIM card is a way to raise the costs for attackers, and requiring an email address is a weaker form of this.
