The problem is that Facebook’s app for iOS and Android devices doesn’t encrypt your login credentials, making them a sitting duck for bad apps or a poisoned USB connection.

“A rogue application, or two minutes with a USB connection, are all that’s needed to lift the temporary credentials from either device,” Bill Ray wrote in The Register."
