[Sus] Social security app would like to change your system setting

103 words (approximately 1 minute reading)

So I was asked to install an app to handle some social security and insurance information (no don’t ask me I don’t even know what that’s supposed to mean, or what it’s supposed to do). The app asks for permissions to change system setting when I click on something that looks like notification button. I suspect they intended to ask for push notification permission, but like, wow, so security, such suspicious. On top of that, it’s proprietary with explicit terms about not modifying or reverse-engineering it.

I wish FSFE’s Public Money, Public Code movement were a global movement and not just for Europe.
