Facebook Reveals 'Millions' of Instagram Passwords Were Stored Insecurely, Not Thousands

Facebook has added new information to an old Newsroom post, revealing that millions of Instagram user passwords were stored in a “readable” format.????Originally, the post from March said that back at the beginning of the year, some passwords were stored on Facebook’s Internal systems in a readable format.????They initially said that only tens of thousands of Instagram accounts had been affected.????But according to new information, the number of Instagram accounts impacted is in the millions.????A Facebook spokesperson told Newsweek that there is no proof that the passwords had been abused or misused.????Despite being in a readable format, the company’s post assured that no one outside of the company had access to the passwords.????Though Facebook did say it would notify affected users, there was no word from the company on how they would be informing them.??
