    A certain BnB site uses Facebook as a validation of the user identity. As the Terms and Conditions insist that all FB content is accessible and shared with the BnB, I declined to allow that level of access.

    Consequently, a friend LOST a 4day rental.

    Facebook is a validation of only Facebook - - nothing else.

    Two factor authentication? My mother can't even cope with one factor authentication of gmail. I set up outlook with imap for her. They are always telling me I'm in my own little world, but these companies are in their own littlw world. I had one of my apps on android using microsoft email servers, and all of a sudden microsoft wrongly determined that someone was sending spam thru my account, and caused me to manditorily change the password. All the existing apps downloaded were thus invalid because they `couldn't send the email message because the password had been changed. By the time I located the source code and restored the eclipse compiler which crashed every time my mother makes noise and sometimes requires reloading it and ALL apps from scratch, two months had gone by. Mother had to be out of the apartment for it to work.
