Facebook is Demanding Users Hand Over Their Email Passwords

The Infinite Brief
Only two weeks after admitting it stored hundreds of millions of its users’ own passwords insecurely, Facebook is demanding some users fork over the password for their outside email account as the price of admission to the social network.

Facebook users are being interrupted by an interstitial demanding they provide the password for the email account they gave to Facebook when signing up.

In a statement, Facebook claimed it doesn’t store the email passwords, but also announced it will end the practice altogether.
