  1. Hi Guys
  2.  
  3. I understand of the importance of websites/servers storing our passwords in a hashed format and certainly not in plain text.
  4.  
  5. Now, I now own an Amazon Fire TV stick which, because I ordered it on Amazon's website and not in a high street store, it came to me already signed onto my account so my watchlist/history etc. are all there.  How did they do this? I assume a big company like Amazon are storing my password correctly, am I missing something obvious?
  6.  
  7. Please give me your opinion of this even if it is that I'm being daft and not seeing something obvious or is it that currently it is an unknown Amazon thing.

  9. Regards
