Facebook Says "Millions" Of Instagram Users' Passwords Were Unencrypted On Servers

According to Business Insider, Facebook revealed Thursday that it has stored millions of Instagram users' passwords in an unencrypted format, which means employees could easily read passwords for years.

The news came Thursday when an existing Facebook blog post from March was updated.

The post previously said that unencrypted passwords for hundreds of millions of Facebook and Facebook Lite users had been accessible on its internal servers.
