Yesterday, the “Polish response to Facebook” was launched by government media owner Tomasz Sakiewicz - Albicla or “All Be Clear”.
Making the portal was not the pinnacle of professionalism, few key points:
The terms of the portal are copy-pasted facebook regulations within its fb hyperlinks
You can download the entire user base, because it is not protected in any way (a request was sent to the Personal Data Protection Office, but most probably nothing will be done due the fact the office is led by government representative)
If you want to post on the wall to a “stranger”, you can click rmb -> inspect element on the “publish” button (on your profile). Then you look for “input” in html which will open for you and change “Value” to the id of the person whose profile you want to write something on.
User password has no character limit, someone pasted the entire content of Pan Tadeusz (Master Thaddeus) polish poem as a password
Half the users are popes (its national treasure to post John Paul II memes everywhere)
The other half are fake accounts of government party activists, Trump and other famous figures,
Someone created an account called “login”, after clicking on his profile, you just log out
Someone else called himself “delete_account”, after clicking on his profile, you can delete your account (and currently it’s probably the only working method of deleting an account),
A lot of pedophile content passed through the night
barely some managed to receive an activation e-mail, the portal itself crashed after a few hours of operation
Others do not have a problem with it, apparently someone has already set up 500k multi accounts (even after a ban, you can register from the same email)
It seems possible to create an account without a name, without an email and without a password. In the source of the page, remove the required attribute from the input fields.
Sakiewicz is proud of his portal popularity
Poles literally trolled Albicla. No surprise tho, the majority of young people hate government and its tricks.
Privacy has become a very important issue in modern society, with companies and governments constantly abusing their power, more and more people are waking up to the importance of digital privacy.
In this community everyone is welcome to post links and discuss topics related to privacy.
much thanks to @gary_host_laptop for the logo design :)
