Facebook: Ändern Sie Ihr Passwort!

Facebook has accidentally stored millions of user passwords in plain text since 2012!

Facebook is once again the focus of a new data protection controversy: The passwords of “hundreds of millions” of users were stored in plain text. This time, Instagram users are also affected by the latest security incidents. A total of 200 to 600 million Facebook and Instagram users could be affected. Although the social media company did not specify which component or application on its website caused the error, Facebook announced that the company discovered the security flaw during a routine security check in January of this year.
