Google had some passwords stored in plaintext for more than a decade | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Google had some passwords stored in plaintext for more than a decade

You might've tried your best to keep your passwords hidden, but a bug could've allowed Google employees to view those login credentials.

In a blog post Tuesday, Google notified G Suite customers that some passwords were stored on its internal servers without any encryption -- meaning anyone who found them could read them in plain text. Suzanne Frey, Google Cloud Trust's vice president of engineering, said in the post that this bug affects only business users -- so if you're using Google for free, this doesn't affect you.
