this new function with the “device code” is incredibly bad. I am a normal user and create “issue” for Android Open Source apps. My account data is not valuable, nor interesting (if my account is hacked).
i just don’t do bug reports anymore. your new method is incredibly annoying and once it happened to me that i didn’t have my email address anymore and could never access my account again.
i have no desire to contact your github support. it hasn’t caused any problems for years. i could create bug reports for the apps for years. now with their senseless security function. you have restricted the freedom.
i hate you for it. now i don’t support android open source app anymore. don’t create bug reports anymore. except the apps have an email contact.
then i contact them by email and report the bugs there. but never again github.com
i’m afraid since you were bought by microsoft. you’re going to limit the platform more and more, create more and more fake security problems so that you have to do 2 factor (2FA) or something else e.g “device code”
you don’t have any say at all if the users want such a function at all. you just introduced it that way.
you are nothing more than allowing the platform to be centrally managed and controlled. you are bad and I will never support you again.
