Is Google still locking people out of their own Google Docs for containing "inappropriate content"?

When I get a new phone, I'm going to try an avoid any of that facial or iris recognition stuff.

Maaaaaaaybe thumbprint. But seriously, has this shit really ever been a security risk?

People still use a 4 digit PIN for bank and credit cards, so it's not like the standards for security are very consistent out there.

I'll worry about my phone when I know that tech and financial fucktards aren't leaving huge gaps in their entire systems.


Speaking of which:
