angry tapir writes “Worried about logging into Facebook from a strange computer? There’s now a way to get into the popular social network without entering your regular Facebook password. It’s called a temporary password. To use it, users must list their mobile phone numbers with their Facebook accounts. They can then text a number from their phones and Facebook sends back a temporary password that is good for 20 minutes. The service will be available worldwide in the next few weeks.”
