Facebook stored millions of instagram and facebook passwords in plain text!

Which is the computer security equivalent of "Inflamable means flamable!? What a country!" - Dr. Nick.
No site should ever know your password. Even the most basic security systems online shouldn't know or store any actual passwords and there should be no way to retrieve a password. Computer systems should only ever be checking to see if your password produces the expected output once run through some maths but the password itself should only ever be briefly seen as the holder types it in, and then obfuscated before sent to the server. Ironically this means team FF running on an outdated hacked VBB can look down our noses at facebook security.

[Moving fast and] breaking things is their job, though. Zuckerberg has said so over and over. He's also called people "dumb fucks" for trusting him.

Thoughts:
1. This "no one will know" data will get out.
2. Per one of the comments, "crush" makes it sounds like it's aimed at teenagers ... precisely the demographic who've abandoned Farcebook since their parents are on it.
3. Facebook will occasionally match you with someone who died a few years ago.

Netflix has a movie out called The Hack or something similar. You should watch it. If you didn't help write the script that is because everything they say is what you've been saying as well.

Get popcorn for iOS 13s privacy pop-ups of creepy Facebook data grabs TechCrunch

Don't mind if I do.

Question, though: What legitimate reason would Facebook need to connect to Bluetooth devices? It seems like the sort of thing that would be done at the OS level, at least for everything I can think of.

But I know close to squat about Facebook or iOS.

Unless you are focusing specifically on the 'legitimate' part (which has no answer; Facebook has no legitimate reason to do any of the things it does, or to exist at all), the answer is in the article. Suckyberg wants to expand the social graph by finding out who you are within BlueTooth range of, at what locations, so it can do more advertising and have more data to sell.

Yeah, I meant legitimate, though. The alert box in the article seems to imply that it needs to connect directly to Bluetooth devices, and then adds the location tracking as though it's a side effect of that.

But it shouldn't need to connect directly via that app, which means that the tracking is the only reason for it.

Just as a side note: Bill Gates' redemption arc sort of chaps my hide. He colluded with hardware manufacturers to run other companies out of business, and to steal money from a lot of people. And most of us never got it back.

Side note to that side note: That deadbeat Bezos owes me even more money than Gates.

$Billionaire's redemption arc, for most billionaires. Looking at you Warren Buffet.

I recall a quote my google fu is failing to find, "A philanthropist is a crook who gives back some of the stolen money."

No risk of abuse here, I am sure.
