The Mastodon "Remote follow" feature could be so easily used to phish the average Mastodon user into signing into a fake instance.

⚠️ Important security reminder: Always make sure the URL shows your "home instance" when logging in.

PSA: Unicode look-a-like character substitution makes it impossible to see which one is phising. Please spread the message! wordfence.com/blog/2017/04/chr

Ok Mastodon users, I need your help.

is looking better every day, but I want it to be a community project.

I want you to tell me what feature (or features) *you* want on the Android client of your dreams.

Beautiful design (almost done :P), blazing fast scrolling, dank memes (?), everything!

Every boost/reply is appreciated :smile:

So I thought it'd be a cool privacy feature for Mastodon to automatically strip EXIF metadata from photos (e.g. GPS latlong, date, etc.). Turns out Eugen already thought of that! 😁 github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

I even checked some uploaded photos with ImageMagick; they're all empty! BTW here's the EXIF data from a typical photo I took on my Nexus 5X. I really did have to make the text that small to fit.

@Ashoka god bless Kickstarter / Patreon / etc for making crowdfunding easy, socially acceptable, and commonplace. Fuck monetization, go community support 💞

I can't stress this enough guys if you're having login issues it's likely something I can't touch - the current login process is done by a web view, as there are no dedicated login API methods. If you're unable to login you need to work with the admin of your instance

That said, if you are using an iOS device it will randomize your MAC address will searching for WiFi networks. This means that the risk is greatly reduced.

I would recommend not using their WiFi network. Disable WiFi and Bluetooth.

If you still want to use their WiFi network, don't register with your personal e-mail. Use some kind of disposable address.
