I've been on facebook for years and they have never asked me such a thing. Ignore that message.

Also why is ATS the only site on what seems to be the entire web that has that big red "not secure" msg on my browser bar?

The "https" only verifies it is the true website and not a fake phishing site.
Nothing to do with security at all . Well , except for a wee bit o' "piece of mind " for one

We all have the NOT SECURE icon but I use Norton and it says this site is safe.
Let the knuckleheads give their information away. There is no cure for stupidity.


But there is a cure for ignorance, information.

If you have some ahare it, what’s it mean that it’s not secure?
What info am I giving away?

A word of warning to they, who still use Face Book. You may want to stop using it completely.


In a highly shady move, the social network has been caught asking some users for the password to the email account they registered with Facebook, reports the Daily Beast. In the notification that pops up for some users, Facebook says it needs to verify they are who they say they are, and one way to do this is to hand over the password to their email account.

The request was first noticed by a user on Twitter: Hey @facebook, demanding the secret password of the personal email accounts of your users for verification, or any other kind of use, is a HORRIBLE idea from an #infosec point of view. By going down that road, you're practically fishing for passwords you are not supposed to know! pic.twitter.com/XL2JFk122l


Thanks Zuckerberg, you're the biggest doink around.


Can I not use an email that I never use, therefore blank?

Where can they go from there?

Just think of the future. Scarier than we ever thought denying the thought of Skynet.





Much scarrier to me is censorship under disguise of fighting hate speech, islamophobia and so on

Sure, but how do we fight hate speech?

I am willing to bet that half to three quarters of the people using the net are only on it for social media with a minor use of shopping.


Well, I do not partake myself, but I heard something like 98% of the data flowing across the internet is porn.

That doesnt speak for numbers of people and what they are doing online, it is probably just a relatively small yet dedicated core of users who dont have a healthy or realistic concept of intimacy or affection, repeatedly viewing porn on a daily basis, the obsession with realistic high quality videos creates huge files resulting in massive amounts of data being transferred.

When I heard that statistic, I think it was over 10 years ago... maybe gaming has overtaken or matched the amount of data by now? Those realistic games with 10 or more players on the same map, being played constantly, 24/7, all over the world, must rack up a decent amount of data.

But maybe not. Porn is a very serious addiction for some people. I find it unnecessary and it seems to cause more harm than its worth in its current form. I especially worry about young people who look to the internet to learn, for instance, what sex is supposed to be like.

I wonder how many girls became lesbians because their first experiences with sex were tainted by that influence, or because the straight sex they saw online looked like something they would rather not be a part of.

We can be certain that there are girls who stayed straight and believed that being mistreated during sex is normal and so allowed it to go on. Just look at the R. Kelly Affair, for one small example. The Hip Hop culture and a big part of RnB culture have just served to promote this worldview. The #metoo movement hasn't even touched the HipHop Industry... the part of the entertainment world that is the most brazen in its treatment of females.

The part of it that seems crazy to me, is that, I truly believe that guys like R Kelly start using women in order to be ACCEPTED, and eventually ADMIRED and looked UP TO, by OTHER MEN. There is a bizarre, somewhat complicated dynamic going on here. They want other men to wish they could be them.

But its almost like, they are doing it because they Hate other men and want them to be jealous. The women themselves are just pawns in a competition between extremely, severely, ridiculously INSECURE men. These men are so fragile they need to be surrounded by fawning women in order to feel man enough. Thats what wealth and convenience actually do to a person. It makes them extremely weak compared to a person who has gotten by their whole life without those crutches.

Zuckerberg looks like an alien, probably is one. I think aliens have invaded and are using the bodies of the hard lefties as hosts. Makes sense, especially since the way they want to help America would lead to its downfall and destruction (do they really even understand this, are they really doing the thinking there?). Then on to the next most powerful country.

Anyways, shut Facebook down along with all social media sites. They're all a cancer on our society.


Roger that, shutem all down.

I never gave them my phone number or e-mail password. I enjoy the site. It's an easy way to keep up with family and friends and even made new ones. I explore art and poetry etc. It's been a positive experience for me.

I would love for people to ignore this, and maybe it's not 100% true. But Face Book has a nasty record of stealing information from people, along with using them as guinea pigs for various inside reasons. I don't trust them personally and glad I never opened a FB page.

For sure, sorry I'm so negative about it, thats just me. Most of my family, and some friends relate to it as you do.
About the phone # stuff, Google, Ebay, off the top of my head keep asking for my phone #..to protect my accounts they say.
I resist having my personal info floating around in any databases..too much info bought and sold these days.
Peace to you

Of course you could do that, but for the millions of people that have, there are atleast a couple billion who probably havent. I personally think that's the only way to go these days.

Last year when Elon Musk deleted his corporate Facebook, I thought if he can I will too, and I did, no regrets.
I wasn't using it anyways, just for stuff that says you needed to see content.

Facebook is the new lifelog, a plan by the cia/nsa to get info on everyone on this planet. And the info is voluntarily given to them. No thanks.

why the hell would they need your password? You telling me a company like facebook needs to ask you to give them your password? They already have it on their servers, including whatever dumb pics of your dog or cat you put up. Sounds to me like a scam. and I don't think the "daily beast" is exactally filled with computer hackers or coders. It sounds like a fishing tactic. The pop up most likley came from malware, probably set to only pop up when it see your site nagivator aka chrome or firefox is on. Not hard to code at all if you know what you doing. what is HARDER to do is getting pass a two step verification. The pin codes are randomly generated and sms to your phone or to your email. I usually pick phone because hacking into phones lots of times requires the person to be there. AKA Cloning phones. Short story, a company will never ask for your password. NEVER. only hackers do.
