Did you know Facebook keeps a list of all your passwords?

I was going through the privacy settings and lo and behold came up a list of about 50 passwords and ids from most of the websites i have visited. I tried turning off this list, but when I exited, it bounced back to the way it was. This is serious misuse of my information.. Facebook shouldn't have passwords for aarp, clothing sites I visited etc. You can never get to talk to a real person, but I need to know how to permanently turn this off.

@baileysue  Is this on a mobile device?  I ask because I'm trying to figure out how facebook gets a hold of passwords in the first place.  Is it 'app' driven or what?

There are many elements: wind, fire, water
But none quite like the element of surprise

You may want to post your findings in "Electronic Forum" many are very knowledgeable and could give you better answer.

 

I haven't experienced this but if this is true then I'd like to know how to correct it thru my settings.

That’s scary. It seems like Facebook is always watching. I don’t understand how things I shop for online show up in Facebook ads. The exact things I was looking at & I didn’t even have Facebook open on my iPad.

What did you click on in the privacy settings that lets you see all your passwords?

I wouldn't worry about it, I have a feeling Facebook is going to be regulated big time soon.

Isn't this when you sign in to websites through facebook?  I never do that.

I don't know what you are looking at but I know that Face Book does not have every password for every site that I have ever visited.  That doesn't even make any sense.  FB isn't Big Brother...lol   Not in that respect, anyway.  Perhaps at some time, you used one of those sites that remembers passwords.
