Expanded Synchronization Functionality
We've expanded the Plaxo service's sync capabilities to include sync with third party web applications like GMail, Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail and a growing list of additional end points. To sync with many of those third party services you need to provide Plaxo with your password to those service. As a result, the definition of "Your Account Information" has been expanded to cover these passwords for third party services; it has also been expanded to cover profile information such as photos or physical location.
Password Renewal Process Changed
The process to recover from a lost or forgotten password has changed. The new lost password wizard sends a confirmation e-mail to a member's registered e-mail address; this e-mail will contain a link to a secure page where the member can reset their password.
