Matthias Ott: Saving your web workflows with prototyping

Oh, Matthias did it again: Publishing one of his thorough articles on the challenges of designing/working with "the web".

The same flaw made it possible to collect phone numbers for Facebook users who had visited a particular webpage.wired.com

Oh wow. This is why I was very reluctant to give platforms access to my phone number, and still have a bad feeling for the few where I enabled 2fa with a phone ...
