the point is we're getting really sloppy with our private information, basically trading it in for technology that doesn't really benefit us tremendously. It's great that somebody invented this plug-in but it's terrible that we're getting so comfortable forfeiting our personal security.
We really are training a whole generation to be sloppy. Does anyone realize that there is actually a US law on the books that makes it illegal to require someone to use their SS# as an account ID, or even a student ID in schools?
I'm betting that comes as a surprise to more than a few, but the reality is that so few even think twice about giving this stuff up.
