Temporary Passwords

When I think of all of the net cafes I have visited, public computers, and unsecured wifi connections something like this is a great idea. Facebook is implementing a temporary password feature for when you just have to get your friend updates using a public computer. Thwarting keylogging software and protecting your tweets, Facebook is on to something. You need to have a cell phone and mobile number attached to your account and a temporary password will be texted to your phone. The password is good for 20 minutes and useless for anyone spying on your keyboard presses. The new feature should be rolled over the coming weeks, now hopefully people will actually use it.
