Stored passwords?

Never done such a thing. Not that much of a lame brain to count on some outside/third party thing to do that for me. I know how to all by myself.

Exactly why I'll never use cloud crap for anything remotely useful!

I think he was referring to the service storing the user's password for authentication. There is ZERO reason for a service to store a password in a format that can be recovered by any means other then pure brute force. And there is a less-than-ZERO reason for any type of a service that touts itself as "safe" or managed by a security software company.

Apparently no one there has heard of hashed passwords with a salt.
