From this post on disquiet:

▰ CLONE WARS: “Your group should set up a password for situations where you need to confirm identities over the phone.

A family joke can be good. You don’t have to be strict about them getting it perfect—you’re not verifying their nuclear launch code authority.” —Glenn Fleishman shares advice for avoiding the trap of voice deepfakes.

We are living in a world where people seriously consider how to avoid having AI pretend to be someone you care about and trust. Wow.
