Plaxo requesting username/password directly

Hi all,

The following website www.plaxo.com has an "import contacts" tool, and they are asking the username and password directly to the user...

Is that allowed by the Y! usage terms ?

Shouldn't the service be using a regular OAuth-like pattern ?

  • Jorge,

    It would definitely be preferred. Have you tried contacting Plaxo?

    No, I havent, I am just wondering about this issue...

    Gmail also has an import tool and it asks username/password directly.

    The "Yahoo! APIs Terms of Use" are absent on if it is mandatory to use Y! login page ... so I think it´s OK...
