If you have a Facebook account (we are sure you do!), here is something you might find interesting; Facebook passwords are not case sensitive! This means there is a second password you can log into your account with. Talk about unique passwords!

If you have a Facebook password with all the characters in lowercase, you’ll still be able to log in with the caps lock key on. If you have all the characters in uppercase, you don’t necessarily have to have the caps lock key on. And if your password happens to be a combination of both cases, you’ll just have to reverse the case of every character in your password. For example, your Facebook password is foLLowUS, but even typing FOllOWus can give you access to your account. It’s just a matter of flipping the cases of the characters.

In case you are wondering if this is by design, we’ll spare you the trouble. According to Fred Wolens at the Facebook PR security team, this IS by design and they have been allowing this for a while now. And guess what? There is another form of password (other than your original password, of course) that lets you access your Facebook account. Have you ever tried to log into Facebook through a mobile device? Then you must have seen how, sometimes, it capitalizes the first character of a word. Well, it looks like you need not worry about appropriately reversing the case of your password’s first character as Facebook accepts your password even with the first letter capitalized. These other forms of password are accepted to help overcome the most common reasons that authentic logins are rejected.

So, does this have an impact on user security? According to Wolens, it doesn’t. Even after your password is accepted, Facebook still performs a number of security checks like prompting you with a verification code if you log in from a questionable device, or if you log in from two locations that are very far apart from each other. Plus, they claim that your passwords are safe. “We do not store our passwords in plain text we use several encryption technologies and techniques to maintain the security of our information,” a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement.

Despite all this assurance, we can’t help but wonder if this ease of use is going to turn into a security problem later on.
