Advice for Beta Testing
Darkmoon Tim reminded the beta testers,
"Beta testing can be fun but make sure you follow the steps in testflight (iOS) to weed out the bugs. The more testers going through these steps the better the final product will be when released."
Danology answered a common question from beta testers:
"'How do I submit a support ticket if I've found an issue with #OrbitalShield?'
Head to the settings tab and click the 'Zendesk Support' icon."
"Very simple. Then click on the "message" bubble icon, type your message and click the Send button. (See images below)"
"So let me get this straight. On top of #OrbitalShield we have 2 Layer security, biometrics,2 Factor Authentication, Google Authenticator, Authentication for Transactions AND Usename, Password and Security Questions. Hmmm I feel pretty safe."
The team is killing it and this is only the first product in the stack!"
"Innovation takes time, especially when it has to do with security for global users across multiple platforms and chains. Now more than ever, security takes precedence and it will be a differentiator in DeFi."
"Security is everything! They will not be able to transfer money out of ur SFM wallet without ur authorization. Even if u lost ur phone, and if they guessed your login info that will NOT impact ur seed phrases. A lost phone will not authorize a transfer."
"'Security (safety), quality and accessibility.' - @CptHodl Security is needed for sure but what about combine it with accessibility factor? Accessibility and ease of use play very important role in adoption"
“@Safemoon & @CptHodl Really impressed and blown away with Orbital Shield capabilities and running as a micro service in Safemoon Wallet, I’ve not been able to break it so far #Safemoon #SafemoonArmy”
"When interacting with iPhones app switcher Safemoon Wallet switches to a page take over in black with OBS branding rather than showing wallet balances! Neat if you happen to swipe to app switcher when someone looks over your shoulder #Safemoon #SafemoonArmy #ORBITALSHIELD"
Why Is SafeMoon Orbital Shield Important?
Community member SBaby shares thoughts in a Twitter thread.
"For everyone wondering 'WHY IS ORBITAL SHIELD SO SPECIAL?' and for those who even go as far as to say it's nothing special... THIS THREAD IS FOR YOU. 🧵🧵🧵🧵 Not storing personal information IS ABSOLUTELY HUGE. The biggest companies that you know have experienced recent large-scale data breaches that put their users' personal information in the wrong hands. Let's start with the one you're using right now.
'Date: July 2022
Impact: 5.4 million
Summary: In July 2022, an attacker compiled information from 5.4 million Twitter users due to a now-corrected system vulnerability. The attacker stole email addresses and phone numbers and connected them to user accounts. Twitter maintained that no passwords were stolen but urged all Twitter users to use two-factor authentication for their accounts.'
Date: March 2021
Impact: 533,000,000 user records
Summary: Hackers scraped Facebook due to a security gap that the company had patched back in 2019. As a result, 533,000,000 user records from 106 countries were posted on a hacking forum. The leaked information included user locations, full names, biographical information, phone numbers, and email addresses. This information was discovered when a user in the hacking forum promoted an automated scraping bot that could extract phone numbers for hundreds of millions of Facebook users.
Date: October to December 2018
Impact: 500,000 Google+ accounts
Summary: When Google decided to shut down its Google+ social network in October 2018, they discovered a bug in the Google+ API that let developers access private data. Google said there was no evidence that hackers had exploited this bug, but over 400 applications used this bug. This meant that up to 500,000 accounts were potentially affected.
Penalties: Users filed two class actions in 2018 that later consolidated into one, and in January 2020, Google agreed to a $7.5 million settlement that allowed all users with Google+ accounts between January 2015 and April 2, 2019, whose private information was exposed to receive $5 to $12 each.
Date: December 2019
Impact: 250,000,000 records
Summary: Two hundred fifty million customer records spanning 14 years were exposed without password protection. The information contained customer email addresses, geographical locations, descriptions of the support claims and customer service case, customer email addresses, and more. The database started being exposed on December 5, 2019, due to a hiccup in security rules and was fixed on December 31, 2019.
5. AMAZON [VENDORS]
Date: May 2021
Impact: 13,124,962 user records
Summary: An unclaimed and unprotected ElasticSearch database exposed more than 13 million records. These records included the personal data of people willing to provide fake reviews in return for free items from Amazon vendors. Specifically, these records included email addresses and Telegram and WhatsApp phone numbers. In addition, information related to the vendors was also exposed, including PayPal account details, email addresses, and usernames (many containing names and surnames).

These are just some of the largest companies. But these types of attacks happen every day on a large scale for all types of companies. MANY COULD BENEFIT FROM USING #SafeMoonOrbitalShield. Look at how much $$ was lost vs spent. SOS could save these companies a lot of money."
SafeMoon Education Manager Cats responded,
"There is always room to improve, so who knows how the wallet will develop. We will continue the evolution of the wallet making similar changes not out of the question. (NOT CONFIRMATION IT WILL HAPPEN)"

Food for Thought
"The path from dreams to success does exist. May you have the vision to find it, the courage to get on to it, and the perseverance to follow it.

"Money can't buy happiness. But financial freedom has a priceless view."
"Stop trying to convince small minded people to see the BIGGER picture. If they don’t see the vision, then it’s not meant for them. Everyone can’t take this journey with us. Have a wonderful day!!"
"Stop trying to skip the struggle. That’s where character is made."
"The most important relationship you'll have ever have is the relationship with yourself. It sets the foundation for every other relationship in your life."
