Another scheduled maintenance at “NYC1 Network Maintenance 2020-03-05 05:00 UTC” is pretty good, they do screen each users before an account will be given. However if a hacker uses stolen identity then that’s a different story, hopefully the process of verification included that process to filter out the hacker’s stolen ID making thinking it’s actual user – a while back and maybe today also the verification process include the users to take a selfie holding their ID, I’m not sure how effective that is today because with photoshop a hacker could potentially replicate that, there got to be a better way.

During the above window, the networking team will be making changes to our core networking equipment to improve performance and support future functionality in the NYC1 region.

We do not expect any impact to customer traffic during this maintenance, but there will be a risk of increased latency and packet loss while upgrades are performed.

Thank you,

DigitalOcean Networking Team
