Puzzled (and initially alarmed) why I got a Github 2-factor SMS out the blue yesterday. I don’t have SMS 2-factor on any of my accounts...

@wiktor It was @ian trying to log in: I made him use my number as a recovery method instead of his own, as mine is a little better protected against sim swapping.

@Alastair Indeed! Turns out I made @ian use my number on his account (it has better protection against sim swapping than his own number)

Open social media for the UK

A social media community hosted in the UK; part of the Mastodon/ActivityPub federated social network, which allows you to follow users on other communities. It's a bit like Twitter but without a single company in control.

If you use this server, you are required to abide by our Code of Conduct. If you don't like it, there are plenty of other communities you can use.

If you're coming here from Twitter, there are some very useful services to help you find friends and automatically crosspost toots that you might like to set up once you're signed in.
