I was surprised by Apple promoting something like this, something that I always saw as a huge security risk.

In Portugal, citizens have an id number, a taxpayer number and a social security number - not to mention a driving license number. All these numbers are different because there is an assumption of separation of information that is beneficial to privacy. When I buy something, I have to provide my taxpayer number, but not my id one. And that is important.

Many years ago I was asked to implement a pre-purchased script on a website I maintained, one that gets the list of contacts of the user from several online email providers. That day, I decided that I had to change jobs as soon as possible.

Do not place you username and password on a site other than the one where those credentials are valid. Period.
