@ludolphus@33MHz apparently you have to enter your SSN to use some parts of Parlor, which I found incredible. I don't care how much I want to use a social media platform. Giving them that level of personal info is mind boggling
@33MHz@ludolphus@thedoctor They really wouldn't unless they had a connection to a DB used by banks etc to detect fraud. unlikely. But that number does guarantee unique accounts or flag stolen ID when there is a collision.
@thedoctor@33MHz@ludolphus That is hard to believe. I am glad I am hearing it from reliable sources:) I pity those who so desperately need to hear from others who hate that they would drop their guard that low.
@prometheus No idea how that would work in Europe. We have (at least in the Netherlands) a similar number but I would never give that to an internet site/app. Even passport copy for hotel I remove the number from the copy. @33MHz@thedoctor
@prometheus@33MHz@ludolphus regarding the Parler SSN bit, I've discovered that you only needed an email and telephone number to register. You could upload a government-issued ID to become verified. The SSN was only necessary to became an influencer.
