    Nope, but I use two complicated passwords for both fb and Droid. Well, now I don't use FB anymore as of yesterday but it was never compromised. Did you use the same password for both?

    Coincidence. FB and gmail hacking have been going around quite a bit recently regardless of whether the owner of the accounts has a Droid (or Android device for that matter).

    Get KeePass for your PC and Droid along with Dropbox. Keep all your passwords in KeePass with a very strong password (and memorize that one password!) and keep the database on Dropbox. Makes it very easy to deal with lots of strong passwords and keeps them secure (I don't even know over half my passwords, I just copy and paste them from KeePass).
