Maybe due to my extensive background in electronics is why I laugh to myself when these online sites try to convince the world that their random generators are completely safe.
Being a human we all have this innate ability of free thought [maybe not so much in the USA…. lol]
Does anyone ever ask themselves the question on how are random generators built? Simple answer, they are designed by a whole lot of coding by human programmers, and as such, any and all programs are subject to manipulation.
Simply look around in this world at all the hacks; online break-in; theft of personal information’s; theft of secret government files……. I could go on and on but hopefully you get where this is going.
While these online random generators may just be legit, let us never be blind to the fact that manipulation is plausible.
