    Not sure. I mean, I agree that I admire the creativity and technical skill.

    The only real counter I can see right now is having the presence of mind to check the actual account name being displayed after/under the display name.

    There's a similar problem being increasingly reported in Australia at the moment to do with banks accused of failing to protect customers from billing scams by not checking account names.

    Techcrunch: A 'Stalkerware' app leaked phone data from thousands of victims
    A spyware app designed to “monitor everything” on a victim’s phone has been secretly installed on thousands of phones.

    The app, KidsGuard, claims it can “access all the information” on a target device, including its real-time location, text messages, browser history, access to its photos, videos and app activities, and recordings of phone calls.

    But a misconfigured server meant the app was also spilling out the secretly uploaded contents of victims’ devices to the internet.
