This year's spring run has begun, and the ticket is not good enough to buy some eager to come home some panic. Although 12306 introduced the``Alternate Ticket'' function, giving more opportunities for those who have not bought tickets yet, ``where to go'' and so on to launch dozens of paid help ticket collection services.
In an app called \"traveling on the same journey \", reporters tried to grab a train ticket from beijing to harbin on january 23rd. The app showed the need to speed up the rush, with speed levels of speed, speed, lightning, star speed and speed of light. The rate of success is%; the speed of success is 20 yuan, the rate of success is%; and then the speed of light is 50 yuan, the rate of success is%, up from 10 yuan per class.
Another app, called \"Where to go,\" has a low-speed, fast, high-speed, fast-speed, light-speed rating that goes from $0 to $50. Reporters also attempted to grab tickets from beijing to harbin on january 23rd, showing a low-speed ticket grab rate of%, suggesting that after spending 50 yuan to reach the speed of light, the success rate is%. Almost every step of the way a reporter tries to grab a ticket prompts for a speed-accelerator bag.
Most of the ticket snatching software will divide the ticket snatching speed channel, and charge the corresponding fee. If the user chooses not to pay, he or she grabs the ticket at the slowest rate, and most of the software turns to the option of \"forwarding friends to help speed up free \". Reporters try to \"travel together\" help link to group chat, found that the need for 40 accelerated package, to upgrade to the star rush ticket. A friend in most cases can only help 1 acceleration package, that is, at no cost, need nearly 40 friends to click on the link for you to speed up, and the software will also get accelerated friends wechat related information, and to authorize login. In addition, friends help more, also cannot reach the speed of light acceleration.
\"In this case, and anxious to buy tickets, generally can only pay for the final accelerated package. \"said Ms. Minqiao of Wuhan, who used this function. Other users interviewed reporters reluctantly said that these app let users forward links, in fact, disguised request to their software advertising, is a marketing means.
Beijing-based ms. li said:\" the previous 11 days also specifically on the computer software to grab tickets, bought a 40 yuan acceleration package, the day before the departure only prompted to grab tickets, if not, the plan is completely chaotic.\" In interviews, most residents told reporters that they used the app, basically because they did not get tickets, had to modify the itinerary or give up the itinerary.
Passengers will pick up tickets until two hours before the train starts, while \"where to go\" will be up to 30 minutes at the latest, says app customer service. If you don't get the ticket, you can refund the accelerated package fee, but if the customer buys the VIP member, the fee will not be returned. As for the large time cost of passengers, apps don't offer any compensation.
\"Sometimes when you don't pay attention, you're defaulted to buy an accelerated package. Ms. Chen, from Guangxi, said:\" I ordered tickets a few hours ahead of schedule for the Spring Festival, and I added 30 yuan to the upgrade package for the greater chance. At the end of the point I saw no movement, open the software pop-up a help link, I click on the help, before starting to grab. What a delay.
Looks like the \"cool tech\" ticket grab, the principle is very simple. \"It's using a program instead of a manual operation, constantly monitoring the remaining ticket information on 12306.\" The software engineer, mr. suulimin, says that the accelerated package, which nominally improves the success rate of ticket grabs by changing the frequency of refreshes, is essentially a \"technical jump\" that \"depends mainly on luck \".
Last may, the railway department introduced the \"alternate ticket\" feature, allowing passengers to register on the official website to wait for alternate tickets without buying tickets, which will be automatically replenished once available.
In fact, even if it cost hundreds of dollars to buy the accelerated package, the railway cannot get tickets without tickets. People in the industry believe that ticket snatching software is the use of public information poor, the sale of public travel anxiety. In addition, for social resources such as festive train tickets, such as the Spring Festival, the app sells tickets to this passenger for sale to that passenger, no different from the ticket dealer.
A few days ago, the railway department said that because online ticket sales cattle and ticket snatching software attached to the 12306 system, they automatically refreshed the page to increase the pressure on the 12306 service system, and crowded the service broadband of the 12036 server, affecting the normal purchase of tickets, has recently blocked a number of online ticket snatching software.
People in the railway department also said that users need to authorize the platform to use their 12306 ticket purchase account and password before using the software. In the process of authorization, these platforms will also obtain the names and ID numbers of all commonly used contacts in passenger accounts, which may bring the risk of information disclosure.
