Some days ago I tried to login in http://www.linkedin.com/
, using my gmail address as my id.
I typed my linkedin password (as I remembered it) and an error appeared with this message:
"Invalid username and/or password. Please enter your email password, not your LinkedIn account password"
You can try that yourself, using any dummy email address.
I saved a screenshot here.
(notice that it's not even a secure -https- page!)
Ok, I said to my myself, it seems I must enter my google password... I entered it, press "continue"... and two seconds later I though:
"Wait a moment... What...? What I have done?? How can linkedin ask me to sent to THEM my Google password ? Are they nuts? Am I nuts?"
I immediately went to my Google account and changed my password, just in case. But I still can't understand it.
