Why Facebook, Why? Almost every week there is news of Facebook toying with its users’ privacy and outright failing their own promises. The company has now said that it “unintentionally” stored email contacts of 1.5 million new users who signed up on the social network since 2016. A few days back, it was reported that Facebook was asking some users for passwords to their email accounts in order to verify their identities. This was followed by a report from Business Insider revealing that after users submitted their email credentials to Facebook, the company imported and stored the users’ email contact lists on their servers, without proper consent.
