If companies start asking for usernames and passwords to other services a person uses it will desensitise them to the practice and make social engineering easier for the fraudsters. There was a study done about a year ago that showed that many people will hand over passwords for a bar of chocolate. So, perhaps the damage is already done.
Curiously, when I go to make my claim it asks me to chose between different methods of making a claim. Sounds okay. But it only offers me one option. And that is “Quick Claim”.
Any which way you want to look at it. I ain’t handing over that information for what ever reason. Not even for a bar of chocolate.
