So I lost access to my Twitter account. Not really sure why, but they flagged it as spam and they’re demanding a phone number to reinstate my account. Whatever, no thanks.
It got me thinking, if I had used my Twitter account to authenticate with every oauth-compatible site, I’d be screwed! I’ve always considered a strength of the internet to be the de-centralized structure of it. But here we have people tying multiple disparate sites and services to a single account.
Do ya’ll use federated auth or no?
- Yes it makes life way easier!
- No way, too many eggs in one basket!
