You are completely missing the point. It is not subjective at all.
Yes, I do trust 2 Canadians trying to make a living through building applications to be useful to customers over the 5th largest corporation on Earth known for banning people heuristically and that makes most of its money from simply having and mining millions of users.
Let me break it down for you.
In the case of Dynalist:
- According to the Terms of Service - Dynalist, you can only get banned if you upload copyrighted/illegal content, and do so repeatedly.
- According to Shida, this has never happened, and with a quick Google search I haven’t found anyone complaining about getting their account banned.
- There could be other reasons such as somehow abusing the system in some way, which I’m sure if your account does get disabled for it, you could reach support to come to an understanding.
In the case of Google:
Take a look at the large list of reasons for why your account can be banned. Now this all seems like stuff you generally wouldn’t/shouldn’t do, except Google can and does in 99.999% of cases detect these through algorithms, meaning they can and do have a fairly substantial amount of false-positives.
Even something as innocent as backing up your photos to Google Drive which include intimate pictures of your partner can get your account disabled, as per the previous link.
The likelihood of having any single one of Google’s dozens and dozens of services you use getting flagged by an AI that crawls your data is considerably high. Surely you can see how this is much more likely than Dynalist ever banning you from the one thing you use it for, specially if you never share your content with anyone. As you say, there’s no way a 2-man team would have built an AI to crawl your content or that they would somehow decide to look at your account out of the many accounts they have.
There are thousands and thousands of cases online from people getting banned by Google. While if you did get banned from Dynalist you could create posts on social media that would fairly negatively affect the owners, Google absolutely does not care. In fact, 99.9% of ban appeals seem to get automatic answers. As with literally every service that Google provides (aside from Google Business), it is impossible to get a hold of a human for support, to make a ban appeal case or something else. Obviously this wouldn’t be the case in Dynalist.
Google is not the saint of a company you seem to think it is.
With all that said, this isn’t about any single service. In the unlikely event that your Dynalist account gets banned, that’s only one service that is affected, which is most likely backed up so it’s not a huge deal. If your Google account gets banned or even disabled temporarily (a far more likely event), you have to:
- Remember all the services that you used SSO in
- Contacting possibly large amounts of customer support to get your account back, pray that that will even work. It’s a fairly painstaking process. I should know, it happened to me.
Lastly, you don’t seem to understand what 2FA means at all. Dynalist doesn’t have 2FA just because it has Google sign in, since you can login with a password. Putting a random password that you hide deep down in your basement is an ignorant solution. Whether you think you’ve done this safely or not is irrelevant, as 2FA is meant to protect all users, not just the careful ones. The many risks with just using a password is the very reason why 2FA exists. Password strength is only one of the problems. You seem smart, so I’m going to let you figure this one out.
