They have the most imbecile password recovery mechanism: With only the national id of the victim(cedula) you can recover their password!
I'm not talking about RESETING the password, I mean they sent you the literal password that was set during account creation to ANY email you input.
This is the state and reflection of the incompetence, rot and corruption of our current and past Government.
For self-employed people I believe the RUC is the Cedula with "001" appended. So it is easy to look up the Cedula of many people (I moved to Ecuador in 2014, my info is in that file).
You are right about providing a more proper digital authentication solution for citizens, and at least one country has this, but in this case it just seems that the data was being kept/exploited for no better reason than marketing and that the company should not have had access to it from the start.
