As Index also wrote, Meta-related social media sites, including Facebook, Instagram and Threads, were shut down around 5:30pm on February 4. After four o'clock in the afternoon, the first reports came, and after half an hour, more than one hundred thousand, and finally more than 460 thousand error reports were received from all over the world.

The lockdown immediately inspired meme makers.

Our reader described his experiences to us.

In response to our article on the Index, another reader shared the following:

I saw one on my phone this morning conditionWhich revealed that Facebook SMS codes are located on the World Wide Web without any encryption, and that the database is operated by a service provider in the Far East. The article was published a day before the notable shutdown.

It is possible that this has been discovered as a security vulnerability, but in this case it is not made public, for several reasons.

It's possible that the service was temporarily disabled during the shutdown, or that the codes have expired due to a time limit – suggests the author of the email to us, who himself was concerned that his account had been hacked and tried to send himself a code, but it didn't work for him as well as it did.
