Not only is Google storing the passwords, but its doing it in a way that means it can read them.  Android devices can pull in all of your old passwords from its servers, which is a neat feature, but does mean they are readable – not only by Google, but potentially anyone.

This is of course meant to make our lives easier, as we juggle multiple accounts and devices, but it also means our networks aren’t safe from spying.  With all this NSA stuff still going on, this just seems to up the concern amongst users.
