Mastodon does not store passwords in plain text. This is trivial to confirm as Mastodon is an open-source project. We use the bcrypt algorithm for one-way hashing of passwords. I can't believe someone is spreading misinformation about something so trivial to debunk.

The tweet with the misinformation got shared 1395 times, my response 85 times...

@Gargron I'm quite confused since the owner post on blue bird app said that this app storing password in plaintext ... I mean, it almost impossible since it's easy to get attack yet you give us the Security details in the documentation.

Logically.

@Gargron I am quite surprised at first, but eventhough this announcement can make us be relieved could you please ensure us to be able to enjoy this platform? Thanks for the explanation!

@Gargron I'm still trusting this platform though, Thanks Eugen.

@Gargron eugen. just please i don't know anything about code blabla i just want to roleplay happily because twitter sucks. :cate: :angery: :cwy: :cwy: :cwy: :cwy: :cwy: :cwy:

@Gargron was the bug with special chars in password fixed?

@vigdis This is not an issue with special characters, nor is it an issue in a true sense of the word. The bcrypt algorithm works on 72 bytes, anything beyond that makes no difference. This is a comparatively arcane topic that is disingenous to bring up in the context of this thread. If you'd like, you should bring this topic up with the developers of the bcrypt gem or Devise.

@Gargron then maybe it should make sense to close the gh issue?

@Gargron Eugen, please don’t betray us, take care of this platform! If it grows this will become a big platform and will be used by many people, I hope you can protect your user data. Have a nice day!

@Gargron please make this simple because im dizzy looking someone with same username but different domain

@Tenlee_1001

This is normal - many people here register one or more "alt" accounts on another Mastodon instance in case their main one has to be temporarily closed for maintenance (or for posting in different languages or different things they do).

Usually they are the same person (check the profiles carefully though).

If you look at mine, you can see I am also on chaos.social where I am @vfrmedia

social.tchncs.de/@vfrmedia

@gargron

@Tenlee_1001 It works kinda like email, multiple servers exist and including the domain distinguishes them.

@Gargron I JUST WANNA THANK TO YOU BECAUSE YOU MADE THIS PLATFROM SERIOUSLY I HATE JACK BECAUSE HE EAT MY ACCOUNTS ON TWITTER WITH NO REASON. WE NEED HAPPY PLACE JUST TO ROLEPLAY.

AARRRRGGHHHH THERE ARE SO MANY THOUGHTS I WANT TO SAY.

sorry :angery: :angery: :cate: :cate: :cate: :cate: :cwy: :cwy: :cwy: :cwy:

@Gargron eugen. i wanna say that please just be like this. be fast respond and listen to mastodon user since you are the owner because we need master-nim (?) like that. it is just like you are the king of this platform (?)

what did i just say :cate: :cate: :cate: :cate: okay sorry.

@wooseok dilihat lihat bang wooseok struggle mulu dah dari tadi 😂

@wooseok JEKI EMANG DAH BRENGSKI NYEBELIN BANGET MAKIN KESINI

@Gargron Whoever spreads the news that isn't necessarily true, is really bad.

@Gargron I was very surprised when I read the fake news. thankyou for confirming that this is not true. lets do the best development for the app . Cheer up !!

@Gargron I dont think this about technical things, this is about envy capitalist because they cannot put ads on this platforms

Hello @Gargron thank you for your work 🙂
I trust Open Source Software and I trust you 👍
Thank you for the information (even if the initial fake news didn't come to me)

@Gargron Bcrypt is a pleasure to use, it's as easy as plan text. Why no use it?

@Gargron And now you see how misinformation works. People like to be offended more than they like to know the truth.

SCIENCE: Empirical Accxperiment By @Gargron Suggests That A Juicy Untruth May Travel As Quickly As Six Times The Speed Of Truth!

@Gargron This is particularly sad for me as this huge difference could happen without the help of a recommender system. I always thought that ok, there is human behavior but we also need ML to magnify it so much. However, it was blown here quite well without it.

@gerazo No, I meant tweet when I said tweet. The misinformation and my response I'm talking about are on Twitter.

@Gargron Ohh, thanks. That sound much better!

In this case, it was just the normal way of a recommender blowing up stuff. I wonder how big the original human response could be. I have a feeling that is not even necessary larger: it just comes earlier because we are motivated to click on more dangerous, cognitially more challenging things first before the convenient reassurance.

@Gargron I haven't heard this until now, weird how Mastodon doesn't hash passwords :akko_thonk:

@coyote Shouldn't you be busy malding because you can't follow some mirror bot right now

@Gargron I'm busy with a lot of things, if a retard like you has the time to stalk my page, I'll take the space (rent-free), thanks

Hey while you're here, are you ever going to account for starting the spying program EUnomia which gives a social credit score to fedi users?

Why not upgrade mastodon from 500 chars? too busy gagging on Dorsey's dick?

Why do you incite anger and division between different communities?

You really don't understand your bad moves lead people to not like you? And people really ask "who could have done such a thing?"

Eugen, you did it to yourself. Consider offing yourself.
@Gargron that kinda looks like what you should have ended up, or what you like to eat. What is that supposed to be? Consider the following: kill yourself faggoted
@Gargron Like, I ask you legitimate questions that more than enough people want answers from, and you write it off as if this is just me being pissed off. No, you don't get to pretend something you did is good just because someone you don't like brings it up. Again: this is of your own doing. The rumors probably won't stop until you are done developing and out of the public eye.

@coyote I mean, you're basically infowars-levels of deluded, you kinda have to dig yourself out of this one yourself
