    I have random generated long mixed case, numeric, special character password.

    Using all caps (cap lock on) did not work. I tried all lower case too. In each instance I got "The password you entered is incorrect. Please try again (make sure your caps lock is off)."

    That said, I toggled the case (lower to upper, upper to lower) in my password and Facebook let me in. Can't say that I like that, but I am not going to loss any sleep over it.

    I dont see anything wrong with facebook, It lets me find old friends, and keep in touch with people, For all the Facebook Haters, Facebook only has what you give it.

    Block all apps in facebook, Use Secure Browsing Mode in Facebook "yes their is a setting for SSL/Https" I also use Ad blockers and Opt out of Tracking with Ghostery or Taco ect.

    Not for usernames, but passwords are more important. I wouldn't want attackers have 2 or 3 valid passwords to find.

    You got me thinking. I better try it. If so, Facebook is wasting my time with the toggling.
