    A lot of people use Facebook ect to sign into different places. Indeed some sites no longer let you register using an E mail, they say that its easier to use third party accounts. I noticed that ATS no longer let you sign up using an Email which means I would never sign up. Below is an exsample of what info you are giving when you use a third party sign up.
    To trust a web page with all this info even if they say they will never use it is like giving a stranger your bank card and pin number and trusting them never to empty your account. Below is an exsample of one web sites private policy.

    So true. Our forum also has it as an option but I don’t use it. It’s for people who don’t care about their privacy or just don’t know how much info they are giving away imo.
