WordPress has introduced this completely bizarre system of blog security where you have to:
- install a barcode-reading app on your cell phone,
- scan a barcode that appears on the screen of your computer with this app,
- write down a list of 10 long sequences of numbers that appear on your screen,
- carry the sheet of paper with the number sequences with you wherever you go to avoid losing access to your blog.
I can imagine few things more ridiculous than requiring people to carry notes with sequences of numbers.
WordPress can’t stop messing with the best and most popular blogging platform in existence. They keep trying to “improve” it in increasingly bizarre way. First, they wanted to shut down people’s Dashboards but had to cancel that plan in view of users’ rebellion. Now, there is this bizarre “security” feature.
