It all started with these messages from my beloved Desjardins caisse via AccèsD, the one that, a few years ago, lost my data to a guy who worked for them and did everything possible to hide the information from us and the police, to the point where millions of people were defrauded and the fraudster who worked for them was never criminally charged
Getting back to the topic, I read this
"2-step validation will soon be mandatory to add a level of protection to your AccessD accounts"
By choice, I (Shoshin) and my spouse (Nancy) do not have a computer at home or a cell phone.
We used to be able to log into the library without any problems.
But now our beloved banking institution is trying to force us to provide a cell phone number, with no possibility of double confirmation via email.
The problem is not the double identification, if the sheep that make up our population feel safe with this false security, personally it is their problem, not mine, where it becomes my problem is when I am forced to do so.
After mandatory vaccination, now mandatory double-checking and why not mandatory abortion after 3 deliveries or euthanasia after 5 years of retirement.
I know that the naive never see the evil in the word "compulsory", those who believe that the state and its happy civil servants are angels, but personally from my experience as a victim of post-traumatic shock I doubt the benevolence of the state and its corporatist friends.
After two hours of waiting on the phone, already there we see the great customer service, I had an interesting discussion on computer security by a millennial pawn of the banking system and the world system in general.
Let's already note the irony of the identification of my person simply by making me hang up and calling me back on my phone number which could very well be a stolen cell phone, no request for my address, my name, my date of birth or any other data, no a simple call back was enough to convince her that I was me.
I pointed out the irony of it, but she said they trust people's good faith, wow, to find out that as soon as I have a cell phone I am in good faith but if I use a password, real name or even email there I would be in very bad faith.
What irony and what an empty employee of intelligence, he just stupidly repeats what a big company tells him to say, no motivation, indoctrination and empty brain in all its splendor.
Anyway, for my sake, she wanted to force me to buy a laptop and a cell phone, for her sake, I diplomatically told her to mind her own business and that I was going to go back to the local counters and offices of my credit union only and only, she was very unhappy about this, I wasn't, I had already been almost forcibly enrolled at the time, but this was the last straw that broke my tolerance threshold.
Now I will wait to find another solution, changing banks will not change anything, thieves are all the same.
