changed their loyalty programme. Instead of a plastic card you need the BahnBonus App (Apple Store or Google Play ONLY) to collect OR REDEEM bonus points!!! This is a separate Bahn app than the one you need to buy tickets of course! Fucking , you just excluded everyone who has no access to that and that is a sizable amount of the population. Besides your app requires these permissions:


You already know where I am if I purchase your fucking railway tickets, so why does your bonus app needs access to my GPS, prevent my phone from sleeping, is allowed to always run a battery consuming foreground service and has full networking access.

Fuck you , it is bad enough that DHL bars anyone with a Play Store account to access parcels in their package boxes. But this is so needless and dumb. And yes that is an official statement by me. You can quote me on that. 2/2

Thanks for the information, @spaetz!
Definetly appears to be a case for @digitalcourage's #Digitalzwang collection - and qualifies #DB once again for a nomination for #DigitalCourage's next #BigBrotherAwards :mastoflushed:
