Do you understand the limitless possibilities of blackmail associated w/ this?

Even if someone was doing nothing wrong, but was on some mental medication or had some std in the past, how much that could be used against them?

There is no need for your password if they want user account details (unless they're literally signing in and accessing the application through the intended user interface). If they have access to the data ...they have access. You're password doesn't matter. They're not signing into the app. They're querying databases/raw data.

the password matters a lot. I don't want anyone getting my passwords end of story. Even if they're getting all the data already if they want my password then they have a plan for it. Also sign me in with facebook on just about every website means that your facebook password could easily get used to impersonate you all over the web not just on facebook.

People wonder how Hitler took Germany without violence.

By the time it negatively affects your well-being, you've handed over everyone's right to resist.

If the government has access to your passwords they also have the ability to create any evidence they want against you......no one in the government would ever stoop to that level.
