GeneralGoogle really does know all... PinprofessionalSander Rossel3-Jul-14 12:42 
So I just re-installed my PC. Completely.
I formatted all disk drives and created a clean partition.
So when all is good and done I download Chrome, login to my Google account and check out CodeProject.
I login and, what do you know, Google remembered my password...
I always thought passwords were stored on the local computer (you know, security and safety and such). To make passwords roaming wouldn't they need to be stored on a server somewhere, unencrypted?
Apparently Google just knows all my passwords. Even after a clean install.
I can check them out right there in my settings. All of them.
So if I can just request all my passwords from anywhere wouldn't everyone be able to request my passwords from anywhere... Given they have my credentials?
It's an OO world.
public class SanderRossel : Lazy<Person>
{
   public void DoWork()
   {
      throw new NotSupportedException();
   }
}
