Explaining that it is difficult to remember long passwords exactly, officials at Facebook admitted that if you get your password close enough the website will log you in. “It’s not a big deal if you forget a capital letter or mistype one number,” said Chris Cox, Facebook’s Chief Product Manager, explaining that it would be too difficult for every user to get an eight-or-more character password right every time they tried to log in. “Just show us you know the gist of it and we’ll pass you through. For example, if you type doglove92! instead of doglover93!, we don’t need to make you type it again.” Later, Cox admitted that if you can type in any old teacher’s name for your favorite, they’ll give it to you.
