Facebook admits it didn’t properly mask the passwords of hundreds of millions of its users and stored them as plain text in an internal database for years that could be accessed by its staff.
See https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/21/tech/facebook-password-database/index.html for the sad details.

While FB obviously only “cares” about your privacy when forced to do so by regulators and their own internal security appears lackadaisical, there aren’t really alternatives to its functionality. So what do you suggest? I have never used the FB app (I use the mobile web app) and use 2FA. Using the mobile web app obviously does not stop them from putting a cookie on my device, but should be “not as bad”.
